Autumn Cookies

We only make these treats in the fall, and when the leaves began to change the little voices in this house began to ask when, oh when, would we make autumn cookies?

Finally, this afternoon we made a special trip to the grocery store to buy the most important ingredient (more on that later) and came home ready to bake.

Autumn Cookies:

1/2 cup margarine, soft
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup milk.

Mix all of above ingredients, then add

2 eggs,
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla

Mix again. Then add

2 cups flour

And now add the most important part:

1 bag of Reese's Pieces candies. (The yellow, orange, and brown candies in the chocolate cookie are why we call these 'autumn cookies' --- such pretty fall colors)

Roll into 1" balls, then roll in a small amount of sugar until coated. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. (They are done when they get little crack lines on the tops)

Enjoy! But be careful. The recipe makes four dozen, but even though they've only been out of the oven for a few hours, they are almost all gone!
