M&M Cookies


This idea comes to you courtesy of my friend, Kristy. And let me tell you, it’s brilliant! She’s brilliant! You see, the cookie dough not only calls for m&m’s … here’s the brilliant part … but you crush up extra m&m’s to add to the dough. You are guaranteed to get m&m’s in every bite! Oh, and an added bonus, the bowl of dough will remind you of Disneyland . . . an explosion of color. That’s happiness!


½ cup shortening

½ cup butter

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

3 c flour

1 t soda

1 t salt

1 ½ packages M&M’s


Cream shortening, butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients just until combined. Crush ½ package M&M’s. Add crushed and whole M&M’s. Stir. Scoop dough onto cookie sheet, forming round balls. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes or until barely golden brown.

    I just ate an M&M frozen cookie dough ball, and you’re right, it’s better with an M&M in every bite!
