|The theme of this week's recipe swap is dessert. I was so excited to get a cookie recipe in the swap because Miss F was starting back to school and needed a portable treat for her lunch box. She is obsessed with M&Ms, which made this her dream cookie. I had a ton of M&Ms on hand from a friend's candy buffet at her birthday party. I usually use M&Ms in Monster Cookies, but they are not safe to send to Miss F's school because they have peanut butter in them. These will be made quite often over the school year. Thanks to Tastetastic Voyage for the fantastic recipe and to A Taste of Home Cooking for hosting the swap. I submitted Strawberry Tres Leches for the swap, I am sure C is jealous of whoever got to eat it!|
1 cup butter, softened
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 12-ounce package M&Ms
Preheat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla.
In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt; blend into butter and sugar mixture. Stir in M&Ms. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft. Do not overbake. Cool 1 minute and place on wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
