  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick Butter flavored Crisco
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • mini red and green M&Ms desired amount
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.

  3. In a stand mixer, whip the butter flavored crisco until lightened in color. Add in the sugar, brown sugar and vanilla and mix together until creamy.

  4. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  5. Gradually add in the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated.
  6. With a round ice cream scoop, drop cookie dough balls onto a parchment lined sheet pan.
  7. Place mini M&Ma on the tops of each cookie (we prefer less chocolate to cookie, but you can add more if desired).

  8. With the back of a spoon, press each cookie dough ball down to ensure more even baking. After this step, add a few more mini M&Ms to the top of each cookie dough ball.

  9. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until slightly golden.

  10. Cool on baking sheets covered with a hand towel for 10-15 minutes. They will continue to bake a bit more on the hot cookie sheet.

Recipe Notes

*If you prefer more mini M&Ms in your cookies, then listed and you'd like to mix them into the cookie dough, add about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of the mini M&Ms...depending on how you like them!
