M&M Sugar Cookies

M&M Sugar Cookies.....For My Boys.


Every Sunday I try and make a snack for Mr. Picky Pants for the upcoming work week. This week I made him M&M Sugar Cookies. Something different than the normal chocolate chip cookies.
Look at all those yummy M&M's. Just waiting to be eaten.
This recipe was fast and easy, just what I like on a Sunday afternoon. I know they tasted great also as Mr. Picky, Taylor and David all ate two of them before they were all the way cooled. I made mine with dark chocolate M&M's as that is what I had in the house (because that is what we like). This recipe is from Jamie cooks it up. She has a great site and I have tried quite a few recipes that have all turned out awesome.

M and M Sugar Cookies
Yield: 48 cookies
Time: 1 hour



Ingredients:

1 C butter, softened

1 1/2 C sugar

2 eggs

1 1/2 t vanilla

3 C flour

2 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

2 t cream of tartar

dash of salt

1 medium bag (12 oz) M and M’s

1. In a stand mixer, or with hand held beaters cream the butter and sugar for about 3 minutes, or until fluffy.

2. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix for 2 more minutes.

3. In a separate small mixing bowl combine all dry ingredients. Add to the butter mixture and mix until well combined.

4. Pour in your M and M’s and mix just until combined. Don’t mix too long here guys and gals…you will crush your M and M’s into smithereens.

5. Form into round balls (about 2 inches in size) and lay onto a cookies sheet. I like to smash the dough down just a little bit with the palm of my hand.

6. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes (about 6 minutes at 325 in a convection oven) or until you see the cookies start to crack. Take them out of the oven and let them finish cooking on the hot sheet for about 5 minutes.

7. Remove from the cookie sheet onto a wire rack to finish cooling.
