  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour, unbleached or all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 (10.8 oz) bag M&M’S mini milk chocolate candies, reserve ¼ cup


  1. Preheat an oven to 360 degrees F. I found this temperature to be perfect for my gourmet cookies.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugars and salt. Mix on low speed for about a minute, then on medium speed for another minute.
  3. Add the eggs & vanilla extract. Mix on low until the eggs are blended in, then at medium speed for a minute and then on high speed for an additional minute. The mixture
  4. should be a pale yellow color and very fluffy.
  5. Add the first cup of flour, along with the baking powder and baking soda. Then add the remainder of the flour a cup at a time.
  6. Mix in the M&MS® mini milk chocolate candies on low speed, reserving ¼ cup for the tops.
  7. Using a 2 ounce cookie scooper, place dough on ungreased baking sheets about 2 a part. Place a few M&MS mini milk chocolate candies on the tops where needed.
  8. Bake in a preheated 360 degrees F oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the tops start to crackle and the cookies are light golden brown.
  9. Cool on baking sheets for 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
