Ultimate M&M Cookies
I got this recipe from a holiday cookie exchange in Wake Forest, NC during our seminary days.
1 c. (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
1 12-ounce package M&M’S® MINIS® Milk Chocolate Candies
3/4 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; blend into butter/sugar mixture. Stir in M&M’S® MINIS® Milk Chocolate Candies and nuts, if desired. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft. Do not overbake. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks. Store in tightly covered container. Makes about 3 dozen 3 inch cookies.
