M&M Cookies

M&M Cookies - About to go in the oven
Ready to go in the oven.

It’s been raining quite a bit here the last few days, so the boys haven’t been able to play outside. It seems that they live for the outdoors, so they’ve been handling it pretty well. Last night I decided to do something special for them and bake some cookies. They even got try some of the batter! I was looking for chocolate chips in the pantry, but I ended up having to settle for M&Ms. This recipe is adapted from my Anyone Can Cook book. It makes about 12 cookies.

The Recipe:
1/4 cup butter – softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup m&ms

Mix together the butter, brown sugar, sugar, salt, and baking soda with a hand mixer or stand mixer until combined. Mix in the egg and vanilla until combined. Slowly mix in the flour until combined. Stir in the m&ms. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 – 10 minutes.
