The holidays are over. Our decadent vacation in the sun is over. New Year’s resolutions are still in full effect.
Oh, well. L made these and I can’t resist. Happy Sunday!
Adapted from a recipe at mms.com
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup M&M’S (mini or regular) milk or dark chocolate candy
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Try not to eat all the candy before you make the cookies (this is hard).
Mix flour, salt and baking soda and set aside. Cream butter with both sugars in a large bowl until mixture is light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Mix in dry ingredients. Stir in candy. Using a teaspoon and drop a heaping spoon of dough two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or, until edges are just starting to burn. Don’t over bake – you want them to remain soft in the middle. Cool for a few minutes on a wire rack and enjoy! You can store them in a covered container, but there won’t be any left.
