Red’s Ultimate M&M Cookies

Mars has put up a simply delightful recipe for cookies using M&M’s.  I’ve made these many times in the past with very good results.  This is a great cookie for kids.

Red’s Ultimate M&M Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks or 240mL) butter or margarine softened
1/2 cup (120mL) granulated sugar
1/2 cup (120mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (480mL) all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 12-ounce package (340g) M&M’S® Chocolate Mini Baking Bits
3/4 cup (180mL) chopped nuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). In large bowl cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in M&M’S® & Chocolate Mini Baking Bits and nuts. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches (50mm) apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft. Do not overbake. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; cool completely on wire racks. Store in tightly covered container.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
