Serves: 3 dozen cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or other flavored extract
  • 2½ cups white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1-12 ounce bag M&M's (I used pastel M&M's for Easter or other Spring holidays)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
Note: Use different colored M&M's for other holidays.
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, place the butter and sugars. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add in eggs and vanilla extract. Beat and additional 30 seconds. Scrape the sides of the bowl.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until combined. Add the M&M's to the batter. Using a medium stainless steal scoop, place on a cookie sheet prepared with parchment paper or cooking spray. Place the scoops 1 inch apart on the baking sheet. Bake for 12-13 minutes until slightly brown on the edges. Repeat with the remainder of the dough.
  4. Let cool for 5 minutes before placing on a cooling rack. When completely cooled, store in an airtight container.
