Sugar Cookie Jewels

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
12 ounces M&M’s Baking Bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together butter with sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla extract. Combine flour and baking soda in separate bowl, then add to creamed mixture until just blended. Stir in the Baking Bits. Shape dough into 1″ balls. Place onto greased baking sheets about 2 inches apart. With the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar, flatten the dough balls just slightly, making sure not to crush the baking bits. Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly golden brown. Let cookie cool slightly before removing to wire racks to cool.
