Paul's Favorite Cookie

I often talk about my girls--this is a cooking blog and my girls cook. But I do have 3 sons. Paul is my middle, middle child. Paul is easy to get along with and a creature of habit. He eats to live--I live to eat. He would be happy with pizza every night. When my kids come to visit I like to make their favorite foods. Paul visited us last week--we enjoyed lunch at Taco Amigo, fresh seafood, homemade pizza and Paul's Favorite Cookie. This cookie is easy to make and yummy. Try it!

Paul's Favorite Cookie
Combine and stir together:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1 1/2 cup M&M's (may use part chocolate chips)
In another bowl mix together 1 cube butter, very soft (slightly melted), 1 egg, 1 tablespoon vanilla. Combine both mixtures and stir well--you may have to use your hands. Using a medium scoop put cookies on a parchment lined pan. Bake at 350 for about 10-12 minutes.

Paul is an awesome son and a wonderful father. We love Paul and his sweet wife Kaytie. Dean and Baylee complete their family.
