M&M Cookies

I made these the other night and they make the perfect lunch box staple! (Louella this is for you!)

Start by getting out everything you need, this is good for two reasons. 1 you will have everything at your finger tips and 2 it lets you make sure you have everything before you begin!

  • 150 g of butter or you can use about a cup of margerine
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla essense
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs  
  • M& M minis or regular chocolate ones as many as you like!

    Combine your dry ingredients and set aside.
    Beat the butter (room temp) and sugars together with an electric mixer until light,pale and creamy. Then beat in the eggs and vanilla. combine the dry ingredients with the sugar and egg mixture. Beat until the mixture combines and forms a soft dough.

    Add as many m&m's as you like I put in about half a packet.
    Place the dough in the fridge for about 30 mins or until chilled and firm.
    Take tablespoons of the dough and roll into balls, evenly space apart on your cookie sheet or grease proof paper.

    Bake for about 10- 12 mins. Don't over cook or they won't be chewy in the middle like subway cookies! Cool and enjoy x
