Best-Ever M&M Cookies

Best-Ever M&M Cookies- soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside!

Because sometimes, you just need to BAKE!

The baking urge has been hitting me since back in high school. I remember late nights studying where I just needed to take a break and nothing sounded better than a fresh batch of cookies. I became known as the baker at my school and brought in treats on basically a weekly basis.

When I’m stressed?

Bake.

When I’m bored?

Bake.

When I need to satisfy a sweet tooth craving?

Bake. 

And my favorite treat to make? COOKIES! Simple, humble cookies. My favorite was chocolate chip and I can whip up a batch with my eyes closed. When the baking urge hit this past weekend, I checked the cupboard only to find –SHOCK– no chocolate chips. Panic, anarchy, tears.

Then I found a bag of M&Ms and knew all was not lost. I stumbled upon this recipe by Baker by Nature and a little while later, I was pigging out on the best dough. After I was able to get my hand out of the stand mixer bowl, I baked up a batch and wow. So good! I knew I had to share it with you guys.

Serves: 24 cookies
Ingredients
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, browned
  • 1 cup tablespoons light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 cups m&m minis
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Melt 1 stick of butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir constantly until the butter turns a light brown color. *stir constantly to keep it from burning*
  3. Once the butter is brown, take it off the heat and stir in the other stick of butter until melted. Place in a heat-proof bowl and place in the freezer to solidify.
  4. Once the butter has solidified, place it in a stand mixer and stir in the brown sugar, sugar, vanilla, and eggs.
  5. Gently stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Fold in the M&Ms.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes until the edges become light golden brown. Don't over-bake! They will finish baking as they cool outside of the oven.
