M&M Cookies. The failsafe kid-pleaser

When I'm making cookies for kids, the first thought that enters my mind is generally M&M's. What kid doesn't like colorful candy stuff in a gooey cookie? There is no such kid. Or not that I've found anyway. This is one of my favorites in a pinch, and they're damn good at that.


1 cup butter,

3/4 cups sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp saly
1 bag of M&M's

Those of you paying close attention will notice that this is the same cookie base recipe posted as the "Any Kind of Chip" cookie recipe. Use it. It rocks.

Cream together the butter and both sugars. Add in the egg and vanilla, and mix until well blended. Scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Next, measure out your dry ingredients. Please note my new Mickey Mouse Spoon measures, courtesy of the Barriles, and their recent Disney Vacation :)

After you've mixed in all the dry ingredients slowly, bust out the M&M's.

Make sure to eat a couple :)

Mix in the M&M's until they're equally distributed.

Roll the dough into tablespoon sized blobs. Give them a little room to spread on the cookies sheet.

Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes, or until the edges and tops start to brown. Let them cool a little bit before transferring them to wire rack as they tend to be very soft an delicious.
