Easy and Quick M&M Cookie Recipe
I’ve got a treat for you today. It’s a simple, quick, yet delicious recipe for M&M cookies. This isn’t just another cookie recipe; it’s one that’ll have you reaching for seconds (or thirds) before you even realize.
First thing’s first, let’s gather our ingredients. You can find most of these in your pantry already:
- 1 cup of softened unsalted butter
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
- 3 cups of all-purpose flour
- A pinch of salt
- And the star ingredient – a generous handful (or more, I won’t judge!) of vibrant M&Ms.
Once you’re armed with these, we can begin our baking journey together.
We’ll start by preheating the oven to a cozy 350°F (175°C). While that’s warming up, grab a large bowl and combine the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar. We’re aiming for creamy goodness here so mix until smooth.
Finally, it’s time to bring out those colorful M&Ms! Fold them into your dough mixture ensuring they’re evenly distributed throughout. With that done, scoop out tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets leaving enough space between each one because remember: cookies spread!
Pop them into your preheated oven for about ten minutes or until edges turn golden brown – keep an eye on them as every oven is different! Once they’re baked to perfection, allow them cool on the sheet for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
And voila! You’ve got yourself some mouth-watering, easy-to-make M&M cookies. Trust me, they’re as delicious as they sound.
So there you have it – my quick and easy M&M cookie recipe. Perfect for parties, potlucks or just those sweet tooth cravings.
