My dear friend Currié and her family came over for dinner to celebrate her birthday. I made her favorite Chicken and Rice Casserolefor dinner. The kids and I decided to make cookies filled with M&M’s and Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for dessert. The cookies were easy to make and a great way to get rid of the extra Halloween candy. They turned out moist and delicious. We all loved the cookies, especially the birthday girl.Candy Cookies: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
