M&M Cookies

I am going to visit my sister and brother in law this weekend; I am so excited I can hardly stand it!

I feel like I can’t show up empty handed so I made them some cookies.

I decided on some classic M&M Cookies this time. They are pure heaven, chewy on the inside and crisp on the edges and chock full of mini M&M’s!

What you need,

1 cup butter, room temp
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 275g bag M&M Mini Baking Bites
(I used salted butter if you don’t add ½ tsp. salt)

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat and set aside.

In a large bowl cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time until well incorporated.
Stir in the vanilla.  Sift in the baking soda and flour and salt if you are using. Mix until well combined.  Stir in the mini M&M’s.

Drop the dough by the tablespoonful onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes until just brown around the edges but still a little soft in the center. I prefer a chewy cookie, if you like yours a little crunchier you can cook them a minute or 2 longer

Let the cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container for a week or in the freezer up to 3 months.

You really need to make a batch of these cookies like right now! They are so amazing! I may have taste tested 1 or 5 of them. Hopefully my sister likes them as much I did!
