Want a festive and fun treat that you can supply for literally any holiday? M&M cookies are a sure hit, and you can change out the M&M’s to make them seasonal! Also, have you wondered what the secret ingredient is in bakery cookies? I am about to divulge my secret…

For these cookies you will need:

dsc_0001

1 cup butter (room temperature)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 eggs
3 cups flour
2 tablespoons corn starch *Secret ingredient*
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup M&M’s (I like the regular ones for this recipe)
pinch of salt

Preheat your oven to 365.

First mix together the flour, baking soda, corn starch, and a pinch of salt. Set this bowl aside.

Next, beat together butter and sugars at a high speed for one minute. This allows the sugar to create air pockets and creates a fluffier cookie. Add the vanilla and eggs. Blend until batter comes together and add the dry ingredients.

Next, add the M&M’s. I love using the seasonal colored M&M’s.

Mix the M&M’s into the batter and drop onto lined cookie sheets. I like to use about 1 1/2 teaspoons for these cookies.

Next, bake for 9 minutes, and if your family allows you to, cool them.

These cookies are great for classroom parties, or to dunk in milk. The corn starch really adds to the consistency of the batter. I think you will love these!

Enjoy!
