    M&M cookies

    Ani has been talking for weeks about her “special day.” It’s the day that she was assigned to celebrate her birthday at Parent’s Day Out. She was so excited to bring treats to share with her friends. Like a lot of kids, she requested M&M cookies!

    I decided to mix it up a little bit and update my M&M cookie recipe to take them up a notch. One of my many obsessions is brown butter – it enhances the flavor of any recipe that calls for butter and in cookies with brown sugar, it creates a toffee-like taste while maintaining a soft, chewy texture.

    These cookies stack up to bakery M&M cookies and we’ve been making them frequently since, because our friends and family always request them!

    M&M Cookies - get the tips for bakery style cookies

    There are a few tips I use for bakery style M&M cookies:

    • Don’t over bake.
    • Don’t over mix the egg.
    • Refrigerate or freeze dough {freeze for larger cookies like these}.
    • Add candy or chocolate chips to the top of your dough balls just before freezing.
    • Use a lot of add ins {M&M’s, chocolate chips, nuts}. It gives the cookie a little added height.
