M&M's® Cookies

Recipe [烹飪法] • NOVEMBER  2015
What's your favorite type of cookie? Like most people of all ages, I love cookies. I’m not afraid to admit that I love cookies, even though a lot of people would have you believe it’s wrong because it makes you gain weight.
Is there anyone who doesn’t like M&Ms? M&M's® Cookies are so cool looking. I love how the candies are sitting right on top of each cookie rather than being buried in the dough like with a chocolate chip cookie. Kids especially like these giant cookies with their crisp edges and soft and chewy centers. The batter is actually a chocolate chip cookie batter, only we are replacing the chocolate chips with M&M's® candies. We've got hundreds of delicious recipes to choose from but I picked this one.
M&M's® candies are small rounds of milk chocolate covered in a hard candy coating with an "M" printed in the center of each candy.

M&M's® Cookies:

2 cups (260 grams) all purpose flour

1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

2/3 cup (130 grams) granulated white sugar

2/3 cup (140 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 large egg yolk

1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 cup (200 grams) M&M's® or Smarties® candies


M&M's® Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C). Place one oven rack in the top third of the oven, and one oven rack in the bottom third of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 2 - 3 minutes). Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the egg and egg yolk, beating until well combined. Beat in the vanilla extract.


Gradually add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat just until incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. (If batter is soft, cover and refrigerate for 30 to 60 minutes or until firm.)

Using a 1/4 cup (60 ml), an ice cream scoop, or two spoons, form batter into large balls. Place six balls of dough on each baking sheet. Gently flatten each ball of dough into a 2 1/2 inch (6.5 cm) round. Completely cover the tops of the cookies with the M&M's® or Smarties®. Gently press the candies into the dough. Bake the cookies for about 14 - 17 minutes, rotating the baking sheets halfway through the baking time. The cookies are done when they are light golden brown in color and just set around the edges. They will still seem a little soft in the center but they will firm up as they cool. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.


Makes about 15 large cookies.
