Until I made her Giant M&M Cookies this past weekend.
I now have a new love, my friends.
I made these cookies for a holiday party that we attended with Brandon’s work colleagues on Saturday.
Not going to lie … after I tasted one, I kind of wanted to keep them all for myself.
I used Jessica’s exact recipe and they turned out perfectly.
Just a couple of notes …
1. I saw a few people comment on Jessica’s recipe that they couldn’t find mini M&Ms. I found them in the candy aisle of my grocery store … which is just a Super Wal-Mart, not any kind of special grocery store! So be sure to look carefully through the candy aisle if you can’t find them in the baking section!
2. People also commented on Jessica’s recipe that their batter was too wet. You have to make sure you cool your butter after you melt it. I’m just repeating what Jessica said … this isn’t my original idea! I stuck my butter in the fridge for about 15 minutes, and it seemed to work well!
3. I also put my dough in the fridge for about 20 minutes before forming the cookies. I don’t know if it really mattered or not, but since my cookies turned out so well, I would recommend this step!
4. I followed Jessica’s advice about how to form the cookies on the baking sheet.
Mine didn’t look quite as “cute” as hers, but they still resulted in the same amazing cookies!
Brandon also loved these cookies.
He seems to prefer simple, basic recipes. Adding too much “stuff” into a cookie isn’t his thing.
A simple, delicious sugar cookie with mini M&M’s, however, was right up his alley.
So go make these. Hurry up … what are you waiting for??
