M&M Cookies (makes 4-5 dozen cookies) Ingredients:
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla
1-1 3/4 cups M&Ms, depending on how many M&Ms you like in your cookies
Preheat oven to 375F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars with an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Add vanilla. Gradually mix in dry ingredients until combined. With a wooden spoon stir in M&Ms. Using a medium dough scoop, drop dough on the baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
Bake for 9-11 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden brown. Do not overbake. The centers may look slightly undercooked. Remove pans from the oven and let sit for 3-4 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.
