Before I get into sweeter things...I am switching my facebook baking/blog page to a fan page. Originally I had it setup as a person so that I could message ect. But things have changed a bit and the switch has been needed for awhile now. You can go here and click like to follow me, don't forget I will be deleting the other page soon. I will soon have all the picture, links, and albums there.
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg and 1 egg yolk at room tempature
2 tsp. vanillia extract
1 cup m&m's
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. I personally like to bake just about everything at a little lower then the norm.
Step 2: Line a few pans with foil or parchment paper. I ALWAYS do this...no matter the cookie. Trust me it will come in handy. Maybe soon I'll invest in those baking mats I should have bought ages ago ;)
Step 3: Mix 2 1/4 cupe 1/2 tsp. baking soda in a bowl, and of course set aside. Does it drive anyone else nuts to always dirty up a bowl to mis the dry ingredients?
Step 4: In another bowl or a mixer bowl mix the melted butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 cup white sugar.
Until it's nice and smooth.
Step 6: Add in 1 cup of m&m's. Just to be careful I use a spoon to fold them in.
Step 7: Time to drop the cookies on to the sheet. I use my cookie scooper to measure out the dough. It's about the same size as a tablespoon, that works too.
Step 10: Here's the sneeky part. After 6 minutes your cookies should look about like this..the dark center shows they are not done. Pull them out and quickly add m&m's to the top.
See! Now they look like m&m cookies. I'm conviced bakeries must do something like this..I've never baked a m&m cookie that came out pretty on top..on it's own....yet I see them in stores all the time. This works for me!
But wait! You didn't think I would just leave them like this right? These cookies were way to pretty to be left all alone.
My persistent nature to make things more complicated then they have to be won as usual.
I added a little buttercream and some sprinkles to create some really yummy (and incredibly cute) cookie sandwhiches.
I think these might be going into the girls easter baskets.
