M & M Cookies

Prep Time 25 mins  Cook Time 8 mins Total Time 33 mins

Makes about 60 Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour 

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/2 cup packed light or dark brown sugar

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1 cup of M & M’s

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F 

  2. Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together until combined. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl using a hand-held or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and the brown sugar together on high speed until completely smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add the beaten egg and vanilla extract, and beat on high speed until blended, about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed to combine. 

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until combined.

  5. Stir in the M&Ms.

  6. Roll cookie dough into very tiny balls, about 1 teaspoon of dough per cookie and arrange on the prepared baking sheets, I recommend baking parchment paper. 

  7.  Bake for 7-8 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. While the cookies are still warm, press M&Ms into the tops, if desired.  Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
