Our family is obsessed with cookies! And this recipe is so easy and fun! My kids love to cook them with me, doing all the M&M selection job. And what’s great about this recipe is that it’s quick and the cookies always turn out soft.
1 cup unsalted butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup M&M’s (chocolate ones) , plus more for tops if desired
Preheat the oven to 375 °F. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, using a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar for 1 minute. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir mix just until combined. Fold in the M&M’s. Refrigerate dough for 15 to 30 minutes if time allows.
Using a large spoon, scoop the cookie dough onto the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Place extra M&M’s on the top of the cookies if desired.
Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until the edges are barely golden brown. Allow cookies to set on pan for 2 minutes, and then remove to a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days (although I doubt they will last that long!).
You can freeze these cookies in cookie scoops (just let thaw completely before baking) or as whole cookies. These will last in your freezer for 3-4 months if wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in a freezer-safe bag.
