M&M Patriotic Celebration Cookies {Easy and Fun To Make}

10:28 AM

These are some Patriotic Cookies that my grandson, Caleb made last summer when we had our cookie marathon, and I never got it posted.

These were the red and blue mini M&Ms that he picked out from a package of M&Ms I bought at Easter and thought they were Easter colors. He made some cookies with the orange, brown and yellow ones for a fall cookie recipe.

This is a easy and quick recipe that he not only worked so hard at reading and getting the recipe right, he made sure they were all the same size.  I love making cookies with my grandchildren ~ Great job Caleb!

M&M Celebration Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean paste (or 1 teaspoon vanilla)
2 eggs
1 cup mini M&Ms

Preheat oven 375 degrees F.  In the bowl of electric mixer using the paddle attachment, add the butter, brown sugar, and sugar.  Beat until creamy; add eggs one at a time, beating well after each one.  On parchment paper or in a small bowl, sift flour, baking soda, and salt.  Gradually add to the creamy mixture.  Fold in M&Ms being careful not to break them up.  Chill in the refrigerator 1 hour.  Using a scope, drop on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.  Cool on the parchment paper and then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Note:  There has been a typing error on the flour amount and the butter amount that I have fixed.  Sorry for the inconvenience.
