Giant M&M Cookie

Y’know what’s cheerful? An M&M cookie. Y’know what’s just downright day-changing? A GIANT M&M cookie! If that doesn’t put a smile on your face…time for a new face.

It’s for you!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup M&MS… I didn’t really measure, I just poured a bunch, then we patted a bunch more on top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add the egg and vanilla and beat in. Add the dry ingredients and beat until evenly combined.

Heeey look, it’s my friend Jani. We’ll probably be seeing a lot more of her, now that I live in NH.

Fold in the M&Ms, without worrying too much about measuring. It’s a big cookie, it can take a lot of M&Ms, right? Definitely.

Press the dough into an even circle on the baking sheet, leaving about an inch between the circle and the narrower sides of the pan for it to spread. Pat some more M&Ms on the top, if you like.

SO EXCITED

The recipe I followed then said bake 13-16 minutes until lightly golden brown. I think ours took more like 25-30. So, if your dough is roughly 1/4″ thick when you bake, start checking around 13 minutes, if it’s closer to 1/3-1/2″ thick, you can probably leave it in there for 20 minutes before you need to keep a close eye on it.

Let the cookie cool completely on the pan, and you’ll be able to peel it off the foil in one giiiiant cookie. And then hug it. Because, really. Just look at it. It’s soooo happy! It’s also got the perfect amount of salt, and a really good texture. Two thumbs way up!

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup+ M&MS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with foil and set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugars in a large bowl. Add the egg and vanilla and beat in. Add the dry ingredients and beat until evenly combined. Fold in the M&Ms and pat the dough into an even circle on the baking sheet, leaving about an inch between the circle and the narrower sides of the pan for it to spread. Pat some more M&Ms into the top, if you like.

Bake 13-16 minutes for 1/4″ thick dough, 20-25 for 1/2″ thick, or until golden brown. Let cool completely on the pan before serving.

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.
