PUMA SPIN CLASS

"Enter our latest concept for Puma that we call SPINSTAR, which aligns perfectly with the brand image. It is a touring program that finds participants who can last the longest in a spin class, with Puma as the backdrop. Participants are offered a free pair of Puma sneakers and workout gear once they pass 2 hours (most spin classes run for 45 minutes). The winners of each session (which can last up to 8 hours) will receive the Puma bike and would then be invited to the final competition where the winner of the longest spin-class is crowned Puma SPINSTAR, receiving $25,000 cash along with $10,000 worth of Puma gear."

[[Todays recipe]]

M&M COOKIES

::Ingredients::

1 cup shortening

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar (regular white sugar)

2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

2 ¼ cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 ½ cup M&Ms


::Directions::

-Preheat the oven to 375 degrees

-Cream shortening and sugars

- Once creamed, beat in vanilla and eggs until evenly distributed

-Slowly add the flour, baking soda, and salt to the wet ingredients.

-Lastly- fold in the M&Ms!

-(Your mixture should look very similar to the picture above)

-If you have an older baking sheet, or a baking sheet that has been used for things other than cookies- I recommend using parchment paper (like I did above)

(In school we use parchment paper like nobody’s business lol, this is because those baking sheets are used for so many things like fish, beef, poultry, etc.)

-OR-

-If you have a newer baking sheet that has only been used for cookies and such –

go ahead and spoon the cookie dough right onto the sheet

-Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes

-Remove from the oven

-Let the cookies cool on a baking sheet


-When I bake cookies I like to make them different sizes because some people will go for a petite cookie while others go for a gigantic one.

::In the above picture::

- The cookies all the way to the left were measured out with a tablespoon sized ice cream scooper

-The cookies in the middle I measured out by hand and rolled into little balls.

-The ones all the way to the right were made with dough that had no m&ms mixted into it – so I just rolled the dough into balls and placed a couple of m&ms on top

**After you try the recipe once you will get a feel for when and how you want to add the m&ms to the cookie dough.**


ENJOY!!
