Red, White, and Blue Cookies

 

To me and my family, these cookies have just about the perfect base for anything.  You could put in chocolate, nuts, dried fruit – pretty much any cookie add-in.  But, with Independence Day just around the corner, I chose to make red, white, and blue cookies.  I know M&M makes red, white, and blue M&Ms, but when I made these, I couldn’t find them, so I made these using some similar candies I found at a local store.  I have to say though, if you can find the M&Ms, I think they would be less expensive.  And, you could make these with any color for any occasion.
