I’m a mom to a pre-schooler which means when Valentine’s Day hits I need to make 20 of some sort of Valentine’s treat to send with Drew. Drew has been painting and drawing Valentine’s for each of the kids in his class which we are going to clip onto a bag holding one of these M&M cookies for each child in his class.
I tweaked the recipe for my chocolate chip cookies that I make on a weekly basis! Enjoy!
M & M Cookies
3/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
Add and mix well:
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg yolk
Mix into wet ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
After all of the above ingredients are mixed use a spatula to mix in a large bag of M&Ms (use a bag that is about the size of a bag of chocolate chips, give or take some).
Bake at 350 for 13 minutes on a non-stick cookie pan. When I took the cookies out after 13 minutes that didn’t look totally done but they were perfect after sitting on the pan for a minute and then transferring to a wire rack to cool.
