Refrigerator M&M Cookies

Since the company is now offering m&ms in specialty colours all throughout the year, this is an easy way to make holiday-themed treats for any holiday!  In the photo above I've used the 4th of July candies, I've also made this recipe at Christmas with the red and green.
  • 1/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/4 C butter, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4oz m&m candies
1.  In a medium bowl, cream together sugar and butter.  Discard 1 tsp of egg and beat remainder into butter-sugar mixture.  Add vanilla and beat until combined.
2.  Stir together flour, soda, and salt.  Add to wet ingredients and mix well.  Stir in m&ms.  Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes or up to one hour.
3.  Preheat oven to 325­°F.  Scoop dough onto unlined baking sheet in rounded spoonfuls.  Bake for 11-13 minutes.

Yield: 8-10 cookies

Robyn's notes: The dough of this is really tasty, and since there's less sugar in it than many other cookie recipes, I sometimes make the dough without the m&ms and we just eat it raw. Watch me demonstrate this recipe on youtube!

*** 3 Stars: Good. At least one of us liked this enough for me to make it again, but not often
