M&M Cookie Recipe

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Its no secret that my favorite cookie is chocolate chip. My second favorite is definitely these, M&M cookies, which are pretty much chocolate chip cookies with cool candy coating. They are easy to make, delicious to eat, and fun for the kids. They really feel like they are getting an extra dose of sugar by having the M&M's in. I let them believe it. :)

Cream together your butter and sugars. Add in the vanilla. Mix and then add in the eggs, one at a time, and mix until well combined.

Sift together the dry ingredients and then add in batches to the creamed butter. Mix until combined and then mix in the M&Ms and chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 degrees on parchment paper, or a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the edges are JUST turning brown.

Don't over bake! Better to have them a minute under than a minute over.
