M&M Cookies

It is 6:50pm. I am supposed to leave for Cliff’s double-header basketball game in 10 minutes. I was just sitting at the computer reading Perez Hilton and feeling like I was forgetting to do something. But what? Let’s see, I made 2 batches of ice cream today, visited a cupcake bakery to do some “research,” made a stew type meal from Giada DeLaurentiis for dinner, and made M&M cookies to bring to Cliff’s game. M&M cookies. I totally forgot to write my post for tomorrow. I think all the “research” I did today has fried my brain.

So, I’ll just get to the point. These cookies are awesome! It is my belief that cookies are only meant to be eaten around Christmastime. That all changed when I found this recipe. I’ve now made them twice in 2 weeks. I guess cookies are good all year long! These cookies are perfectly chewy and slightly undercooked, just like I like them. I used to work in a cookie bakery, and these are better than the M&M cookies we sold!

Here is what you’ll need

Whisk the flour and baking soda together

In a separate bowl mix the sugars and the melted butter

Add the eggs; 1 whole egg, 1 egg yolk

Add the vanilla. Remember, always use the good stuff.

Gradually add the flour to the sugar mixture

Mix until the batter is smooth not crumbly

Add 1 cup of M&M’s

Place balls of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet

Ours were a little too close together. Give them room to spread.

Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.
