M&M Cookie Recipe

 I made these cookies on Valentines day for some friends. They were sooo delicious I had to make some for Easter too, they're so cute!

Delicious M&M cookies.

The Valentines cookies:

M&M Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 oz cream cheese, cut into small pieces
6 tablespoons unsalted melted warm butter
1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1-1 1/4 cups M&M's
 Preheat oven to 350 F

 whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

 Combine 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl.  Pour the warm butter over the cream cheese mixture and whisk to combine, the mixture won't be completely smooth yet.
Mix in the oil then the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.

 fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. When ingredients are almost all combined add 3/4 cup of the M&M's in. Continue mixing until a soft dough comes together.

Roll dough into balls and place on parchment paper on the baking sheet (parchment isn't necessary, but I like to use it.

Flatten the dough balls a little with the bottom of a cup.

Bake 10-12 minutes, with 2 minutes remaining quickly pull out and put some M&M's on top, I do about 3 each. This just makes the cookies prettier. Cook remaining 2 mins and pull out when the edges are set. don't wait until they are browned.

Makes about 24 cookies
