Description

These M&M cookies are classic soft-baked sugar cookies filled with melty, chocolatey M&Ms! Buttery soft with crispy edges, they’re the best way to brighten up a cookie plate.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1½ cups (285g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 3 ½ cups (420g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup M&M candies plus additional for garnish

Instructions

 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a large cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. To soften the butter quickly, microwave for 10-15 seconds, otherwise let it come to room temperature.
  2. Combine the butter with the sugar and beat on medium speed until well creamed together.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix into the butter and sugar until the eggs are well beaten.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Slowly add into the batter and beat on medium-low speed until most of the flour is incorporated, then add the M&Ms and mix to combine. Increase the speed on the mixer and beat until the dough comes together.
  5. Use a large cookie scoop to portion the dough. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Press leftover M&Ms into the top of the cookie dough.
  6. Bake at 350° F 10-12 minutes. Allow cookie to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
