It’s that time of year again…time to start baking up delicious Christmas cookie recipes!

This is one of my very favorite cookie recipes, and I use red and green M&M’s to make them festive for the holidays! They are perfect for serving at family holiday gatherings, sending to your children’s teachers as appreciation gifts and selling at bake sales!

Christmas M&M’s Cookie Recipe


  • 1 cup of butter (at room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups regular all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 12-ounce package of M&Ms
  • 12 ounce package of Mini Chocolate Chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars, then beat in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt, then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.

Add M&M’s and Mini Chocolate Chips and either mix by hand or mix in the mixer – I mixed them in the mixer and I like the way there were a little bit of broken M&M pieces in the cookies!

Using teaspoons, drop cookies of about one teaspoon onto cookie sheets making them about two inches apart.

I always line my cookie sheet with tin foil for easy clean up, but you don’t have to!

Bake for 11 minutes for a cookie that is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, or 12-13 minutes for a crispier cookie!

This “Be a Good Cookie” spatula was created by OXO to help support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer foundation and 50% of the proceeds of each Cookie Spatula will go to pediatric cancer research! The Spatula can be found at as well as on Amazon.


I received the OXO spatula as a promotional item but was not required to share information about Cookies for Cancer.
