M&M Cookies


m&m cookies

One of my favorite desserts to make is cookies.  Whenever we go to gatherings for family or friends it seems as though you can never go wrong with a good cookie recipe.  Also, if kids are going to be there it’s pretty much a given you won’t be leaving with leftovers, kids LOVE cookies, especially if the have m&m’s.

This m&m cookie recipe makes about fifty 2 inch cookies.  It calls for simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups m&m’s

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and baking soda, mix well.  In a large bowl beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla until creamy.  Add each egg one at a time, beating well after each one.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Add m&m’s and stir.  Drop rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-11 minutes until edges are starting to brown.  Cooking times may vary depending on your oven, try to keep an eye on them.

Cool for at least 1 minute on cookie sheet then place on wire rack to cool completely.

I used regular m&m’s because that’s what I had on hand, but the mini m&m’s would be great too.
