M&M Cookies

I think you all know how much I love M&M cookies. The chocolate burst they provide is so much bigger than just a regular chocolate chip. I love the crispier texture of the candy shell, too. This recipe produces a somewhat cakey cookie that balances well with the crunch of the M&Ms. I could not get enough of them! 

1 1/4 cups of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
3/4 cups M&Ms

In a small bowl whisk cups of flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Beat butter and sugars until fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs.
Gradually add in the flour mixture. Stir in M&Ms. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 and prepare baking sheets.
Roll dough into balls and place onto cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 12 minutes until light golden brown.
Yields 18 cookies.
