M&M Cookies

My Mom always made these M&M cookies for my birthday, and they are still one of my favorites.

2 1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 c.(2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 c. granulated sugar
3/4 c. packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 c. M&M candies
1 c. chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 375F. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in M&Ms and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

  1. Oh, the memory! I had you sort the m&ms by color and put them on so each cookie had the same number and colors! Happy Birthday, Mom


  2. These are my favorite cookies. I remember them well. I've tried to make them time and again – but my results were never as good as the original. Maybe the key is in the sorting and redistribution of M&Ms!!!!!
