m&m cookies

colorful

I'm surprised that it's taken me to long to make these. Cookies? Good. M&M's? Good. M&M Cookies? Even better. There isn't much to say. I took my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, replaced the chips with M&M's, and enjoyed my second favorite candy* in the form of a cookie.

*My favorite are Kit Kats. I'm still thinking of ways to incorporate these into another dessert...

m&m cookies
adapted from Alton Brown

2 sticks (1 cup) of butter
2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups M&M's

Preheat the oven to 375° F. Melt the butter. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add both sugars and cream together. Add egg, yolk, milk, and vanilla until well combined. Incorporate the flour mixture with the butter mixture. Stir in M&M's. Chill the dough for 15 minutes. Scoop dough balls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, each cookie 2-3 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Check frequently and turn the baking sheet after 5 minutes for even browning. Enjoy!
