M&M Cookies



The Hubby and I completely disagree about junk food. He would rather over eat on cheeseburgers and fries. I want to indulge in anything sugar. Oh delicious sugar. So it was no surprise that I fell in love with these cookies. I ate almost all of the dough before the cookies were even done. One piece of dough on the sheet, two pieces in my mouth. Yum! After all was said and done even Hubby ate more than his fair share of these delicious cookies. I promise they do not dissapoint.

-blogger is not letting me hyperlink to the recipe. =( Here's the blog I found the recipe on.

M&M Cookies

2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 sticks of salted butter, melted and cooled
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup m&m’s

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl, mix the butter and sugars until they are combined. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Gradually add flour and mix until a dough forms. Use your hands to help combine ingredients. Add m&ms.

Separate into balls and bake for 8-10 minutes.

*After making the dough it was too soft--- I threw it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes and then made cookies with it. It worked perfectly.
