M&M's Cookies

I have had a craving for M&M cookies for weeks and finally satisfied it today. The chocolate punch in M&M cookies can't be beat. Plus, I love the rainbow of colors.

Even though this recipe does not produce the most visually appealing cookie (as one of my testers so kindly pointed out!), the result is an extremely chewy masterpiece.

What cookie are you craving today?

1 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg white
1 package M&Ms

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add egg and beat well. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in M&Ms. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. 
Yields 1 dozen.


  1. I've been thinking about what cookie to make next. I do like M&M's How many grams is 1 package of M&Ms?

  2. 48 grams for one package of plain M&Ms. I didn't snack on any before putting them in, either! :)

  3. My kids always loved it when I baked M&Ms into cookies instead of chocolate chips! I think chewy cookies are the best. Thanks!
