M&M Cookies

I was in the mood for some cookies the other day and these fit the bill perfectly. Cute and festive, but without a lot of effort.  Recipe adapted from Veggie by Season.


1 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. light brown sugar
2 eggs at room temp.
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 c. flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 c. pink M&Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars for 2-3 minutes. Scrape down sides.
Add in vanilla, turn mixer on medium, add eggs one at a time.
Add in salt, baking powder and soda.
Slowly add in flour.  Fold in most of the M&M's.
Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Using the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass cup, flatten the balls slightly. 

Press extra M&M's into the dough so they are on top and visable.  (This is my kids favorite part!)

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden and puffy.

*Makes about 4 dozen cookies

Serve with plenty of milk.

My two year old twins could probably live off these!  Every time I turn around they are begging for more. :)


  1. My twin girls loved helping me make these. Thanks for the easy, fun recipe!

  2. Can you make this recipe and freeze it for later just like other cookie dough recipes?

    1. i haven't tried freezing these particular ones but i would imagine they'd freeze as well as other cookies. :)
