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 www.oxo.com 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.
