  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cup Christmas M&M's
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, lightly packed


  •    Combine flour, baking powder and baking soda in a bowl
  •   In a different bowl, beat the egg, brown sugar and white sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla on until combined. Stir in flour mixture.
  • Mix in the M&M's, setting some aside to be used later.
  • Scoop small balls of dough out of the mixture, about 2 tablespoons each. Place balls on baking tray. Press the remaining m&m's into the cookies. Be careful no to flatten the dough as it will spread.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edge of the cookie is just starting to crisp. For those who prefer a crisper cookie, bake for another 2-4 minutes.
  • Place the baking sheets on a wire rack until completly cool. Do not try and move the cookies while they are still hot as they will break. The cookies will firm up as they cool.
