Super M&M Cookies

Here is another oldie but goodie favorite recipe of mine. You can’t beat good ole M&M cookies! These are soft and chewy and putting the M&M’s on top makes them pretty, too. If you are in a hurry you can just mix all the M&M’s into the batter at one time. Always use real M&M’s, knock-offs just aren’t the same.

  • 16 ounces M&M’s
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped (optional)

Stir together four, baking powder, salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until light and fluffy. Add dry ingredients. Add 1 1/2 cups of the M&M’s and the nuts. Stir just until mixed. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased baking sheet. Bake @ 350 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes. Remove and use remaining M&M’s to decorate top of each cookie. Return to oven and bake 3 to 5 minutes longer.

    Delish Nani!! Remember to smash down the m&ms into the soft cookie to prevent small children from picking all the m&ms off the top and eating them!
