why but I just feel like they taste better than normal M&Ms,
which already taste awesome. As soon as those bags of red and green
goodness hit store shelf, I always want to make a batch of M&M
cookies and it’s a treat that I make at least once every holiday
season. These cookies are super simple, festive, and always a hit
whenever I take them anywhere.
You can make M&M cookies by just
swapping out the chocolate chips for M&Ms in your normal
chocolate chip cookie recipe, however, I typically use a different
recipe for my M&M cookies. This recipe that I got from my
mother-in-law uses shortening instead of butter, and that helps the
cookie turn out a little bit less flat, which I think helps to better
accommodate the distribution of the M&Ms throughout the cookies.
(you can use 1 cup of butter, but the cookies
will come out more flat)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 12-ounce package semisweet chocolate
chips or m&m‘s
oven to 375 degrees
shortening, sugars, egg, and
vanilla until light and fluffy. Sift together dry ingredients: stir
into cream mixture: blend well. Add chocolate.
from teaspoon 2 inches apart on a
greased cookie sheet. Bake in moderate oven (375 degrees) for 10 to
12 minutes. Remove from sheet immediately.
your family and friends will thank you. Plus Santa told me that
they’re his favorite, so there’s that too…only a few more days ’til
Christmas! I’ve got another holiday post coming your way this
afternoon…see you then! Xoxo
