Chewy Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

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?

Ingredients:

  • 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
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
