Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Blend shortening,brown sugar and white granulated sugar in a large bowl. Beat in vanilla and eggs. Sift remaining dry ingredients together and add to sugar and egg mixture. Blend well. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Place four m&m's on top of each cookie. Do not push into cookie. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Do not over bake.
Use red and green m&m's for Christmas. Brown and orange for Halloween. If cookies get hard, add a couple slices of bread to give a fresh baked softness.
