Blue m&m Cookies

After making colored sugar cookies, just the other day, I started wondering why we sometimes add color to sugar cookie dough but never add it to chocolate chip cookie dough, so that's exactly what I decided to do and it turned out great. I used my new favorite m&m cookie recipe and added just a few drops of Betty Crocker gel blue food coloring. Here's the recipe (again) and a picture (below)

Blue m&m Cookies
1 cup sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 cup crisco
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (3.4 oz) pkg vanilla pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 cups flour
Few drops Betty Crocker blue gel food color
1 cup mini m&ms
3/4 cup mini white chips

Beat Crisco and sugars till creamy. Add baking powder, salt, vanilla, eggs, and pudding mix. Beat till well combined. Gradually add flour till dough comes together and is well mixed. Add drops of food color, couple drops at a time, till dough reaches right color. Mix till color is even and well incorporated. Add m&ms and white chips. Shape dough into golf size balls and bake 8 min at 350
