Peanut Butter M&M Cookies
The original recipe said to bake for 20-25 minutes. My oven is old and a bit quirky and baked them for approx 18-20. Bake until edges just begin to brown.
  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup M&Ms or chocolate chips
  1. In a large bowl cream well together butter and sugar, add egg and beat until creamy, add vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and salt, then add M&Ms or chocolate chips.
  3. To the large bowl add ⅓ at a time the flour mixture, mixing with a wooden spoon. Turn onto a lightly floured wooden board, knead gently until firm (with lightly floured hands), wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 24 hours.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
  5. Remove from fridge, shape into balls and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheets, flatten with a fork (dip lightly in flour, so dough doesn't stick) and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes. Let cool completely. Enjoy!
