Chewy M&M Oatmeal Cookies
This was another great oatmeal cookie recipe courtesy of AllRecipes! This were very thin, crispy, and chewy all at the same time - which I loved! I love the crisp edges and chewy centers. The original recipe calls for chocolate chips and walnuts but we used mini M&Ms instead. I'm sure whatever you want to add to these would work great. I thought they'd be really yummy with some fruit pieces in there too.

- In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; stir into the creamed mixture until just blended. Mix in the quick oats, walnuts, and chocolate chips gently. Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets.
