Ingredients

  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup 1 ½ sticks butter, melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup m&m’s (mini or regular

Directions

  1. • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. • In a medium bowl, combine flour and baking soda.
  4. • Mix melted butter and sugar.
  5. • Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Mix until combined.
  6. • Gradually add the flour mixture to form dough.
  7. • Stir in m&m’s.
  8. • Scoop out 2 tablespoon portions of dough and roll into balls. (Leaving about 2” between cookies, I fit 12 cookies on a large cookie sheet.)
  9. • Tear each ball in half. Stack halves with smooth sides touching. Smoosh down gently so that the halves stick together.
  10. • Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are slightly brown (centers should still be soft and puffy). Cool on a rack.

Packing Tips

Double wrap pairs of cookies in plastic wrap with bottoms together. Place bundles in larger zip lock bag or air tight container.
