Cute M&M Cookies!

Cooking up some good ol’ cookie love today!

Make ’em however your heart desires! Soft, Crispy, Thick, Thin, Chewy, Crunchy, with the M&M, without the M&M, with the brown sugar, without the brown sugar….. Well, you can see this really is a versatile recipe!

But after 3 trials, this is how I like them – A little on the thicker side, not too crunchy or soft, with the brown sugar, a little mocha flavor thrown in for good measure; aaaaaaand loaded with M&Ms! Or, the Indian substitute we get here – Gems! 🙂

Description

Thick & Buttery eggless M&M Cookies recipe!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Soft Butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar or Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Instant Espresso Powder (optional)
  • 1 cup M&M / Gems candies
  • 3/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • a Pinch of Salt (*skip if using salted butter)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Tablespoon plain Yogurt (optional) – Use only if you want a very soft cookie

1 cup = 200 grams


Instructions

  1. Line your Baking tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Preheat oven to 180 C / 365 F.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together for 2 minutes. (If using granulated brown sugar, it won’t completely dissolve. It is okay)
  3. Add 1/2 cup of M&M / Gems candy, Vanilla extract and Espresso powder. Mix well.
  4. *Add the plain yogurt and mix well – if you want a softer cookie. Skip for regular butter cookie
  5. Sift in the All Purpose flour, baking soda and mix to form a soft cookie dough. If the dough is too sticky, stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes. If it is too thick or dry, add a teaspoon of milk and mix.
  6. For equal sized cookie dough balls, slightly flatten them and place on the prepared baking dish at least 1 inch apart. Stick the remaining M&M / Gems candy all over the top of the cookies
  7. Bake at 180 C for 10-12 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely.
  8. Store in air tight container up to 7 days.
