Hope you had a wonderful weekend! It’s almost December which means the start of my Cookie Countdown to Christmas. These Chewy Peanut Butter M&M Cookies aren’t Christmas cookies, but they are one of my favorite go-to cookies to make when I’m craving cookies. They are soft and chewy and delicious to snack on with a glass of milk. I used peanut butter M&Ms to give them even more peanut buttery goodness.
What’s your favorite go-to cookie to make?
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3 large eggs
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 2 teaspoonsvanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cup Peanut Butter M&Ms
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
On medium speed, in large bowl, blend sugars; add butter, mix till grainy consistency. Add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla extract; beat till fluffy. On low speed, add flour mixture until barely mixed into butter mixture.
Drop by rounded tablespoonsful, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a wet or flour coated fork to gently press a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie.
Bake until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned, approximately 18 to 20 minutes. Remove to cool on a flat surface.
Yield: 36 cookies
