My sweet Mara did it again! I am so proud of all my granddaughters, they all cook and bake, even my 10-year old darling Sienna.
This time; however, Mara tried a recipe listed in the back of a “ginormous” bag of M&M’s that she got as a birthday gift from a friend. I tell you this, I wish that blog-recipes comes with an app for taste and smell, because these cookies were dangerously amazing and hard to stop at eating just one. So, I am sorry, maybe next time the app will be available to you, smile.
Approximate Prep (15) Refrigerate (1 hour) Baking Time 10-15 minutes
Approximate Cost: $8.06 or .32 cents per cookie
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
Servings: 25 cookies
Ingredients (I copy the recipe from the back of the M&M bag)
2 sticks of unsalted butter ($1.25)
2/3 cups brown sugar (.50)
2/3 cups white sugar (.50)
1 egg (.16)
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract ($2.00)
2 cups of all-purpose flour ($1.50)
1 ¼ cup baking soda (.15)
1 tsp. salt
1 ¾ cups of M&M chocolate candies ($2.00)
In a large bowl, cream butter, both sugars, mix well and add the eggs and mix to combine. Then add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt.
Slowly add these ingredients into the butter mixture bowl and mix until combined.
Fold the M&M and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour or overnight.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a lightly greased baking pan about 2” apart.
Preheat oven at 350 degrees and bake for about 8-10 minutes for chewy or 12-14 for crispy cookies.
Enjoy these amazing cookies, you will make them again, over and over.
