Patriotic M & M Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

 2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

3 cups flour

1 – 11oz bag M & M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar. When creamy, add in eggs and vanilla. Sprinkle salt, powder and soda over the top. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing until well blended. Stir in half of the M & M’s. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes and remove from oven. Immediately press a few M & M’s into each cookie, tucking them into the dough a bit so they will stick.
