   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           butter or margarine
    1      cup           granulated sugar
    1      large         egg
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    2      cups          all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1      12 oz. pkg    M&M’s Baking Bits (either flavor)
                         granulated sugar  -- as needed
 					
 
  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  
  Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy; add egg and 
  vanilla.  Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture just until 
  blended.  Stir in M&M’s Chocolate Baking Bits.  Shape dough into 1-inch 
  balls.  Place on greased cookie sheets about 2-inches apart.  With bottom 
  of a glass dipped in sugar, flatten dough very slightly so as not to crush 
  the baking bits.  (NOTE: Very important to keep the balls of dough small 
  and just barely flattened because these SPREAD out a lot.)  Bake 10 to 12 
  minutes or until edges are light golden; let cool 1 minute before removing 
  to wire racks to cool completely.  Store in tightly covered containers.
