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
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
