The Best M&M Cookies.
Serves: 10 cookies
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 Tsp. of vanilla extract
  • ¾ cups light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup White sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¼ Cups of Flour
  • 2¼ Tsp. Baking Powder
  • ½ Tsp. of Sea Salt
  • ½ Cup of M&Ms
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together softened butter, vanilla, brown sugar, and white sugar until smooth and fluffy, add in the egg and continue to beat until just combined.
  3. Add in sifted flour, baking powder, and sea salt to the wet ingredients, and mix together until combined, then fold in the M&M candies.
  4. Scoop out heaping tablespoon sized balls of the dough and roll into balls before dropping on the cookie sheet. Space the dough 1" apart on the cookie sheet; you should have about 10 cookies.
  5. If desired, add extra M&Ms on top of the cookies, pressing them lightly into the dough.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes, checking to see that the edges are firm but the center is still a bit soft.
  7. Remove from oven and let them rest for ten minutes on the baking sheet to firm up before transferring to a wire cooling rack. Store in airtight container.
