I can think of a lot of things that M&M could stand for.... Mickey Mouse, Magical Moms, and Making Memories with Mommy's Monsters. My little guys both LOVE M&M's (and well so do I) so these cookies are always a hit at our house. Nathan's favorite part is mixing in (and stealing) the M&M's. I love to bake up a special treat with my kiddos.
Ingredients: (makes 30-36 cookies)
- 2 Cups of Flour
- 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 3/4 Cup Butter Flavored Crisco (or Butter)- at room temperature
- 1 Cup Mini M&M's
Preheat oven to 325. In medium bowl, sift together Flour, Salt and Baking Soda. Then in large bowl cream together sugar, brown sugar, and Crisco using a mixer. To that mixture add the vanilla, egg, and egg, yolk.
Slowly add in flour mixture while keeping mixer on low. Last, Stir in M&Ms.
