Red’s Amazing M&M Cookies

This recipe was on the side of the M&M’s bag a couple years ago.  I dont know who was named Red, but must have been someone pretty special to get their name on the recipe and then on the M&M’s bag.  Hmmm…coulda just typed it here as “Pat’s Amazing M&M Cookies” but… nah, the recipe name belongs to Red…. whoever that is.  Thank you, Red.  And, no, i didn’t use the M&M’s from a couple years ago….it was a new bag…. just sayin.

Red's Amazing M&M Cookies

 1 Cup Butter (2 sticks), slightly softened

2/3 Cup Brown Sugar

2/3 Cup Sugar

1 Egg

1 & 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

2 cups Flour

1 & 1/4 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Salt

1 & 3/4 cups M&M Milk Chocolate Candies

HOW TO:   oven @ 350°

In a large bowl, cream butter and both sugars until well blended.  Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix to combine.

In a separate bowl, sift together:   flour, baking soda and salt.  Add flour mixture slowly to the butter mixture.  Combine well.

Fold in the M&M’s.  Chill the dough for an hour or overnight. (I didn’t chill the dough at all, because I was in a rush).  

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon-fulls onto a lightly greased tray, about 2 inches apart. ( I didn’t grease the cookie sheet…I used parchment paper)

bake between 8-14 minutes depending on if you like chewy or crispy cookies.

Yeah, this batch of cookies aint gonna last in this house….
