The Best M&M’s Sugar Cookies

Sharing is caring!

I love cookies! I spend the whole month of December playing with recipes and making batches of cookies with friends and neighbors. 

This recipe for the Best M&Ms sugar cookies is probably the recipe that I have messed with the most before I got it perfect! 

If you have ever had a Publix sugar cookie – this cookie has the same taste and texture. So you could easily omit the M&M’s and sprinkle with some sugar to turn this into the best sugar cookie recipe. 

The cookie recipe is the best base for so many creations. I have also used this recipe and added M&Ms, chocolate chips, and mini chocolate chips (use 1 cup of each). 

        

So when you are looking or the best Christmas cookie to make this holiday season – you have to try this recipe. It makes a ton of cookies (I would say about 5 dozen) and they are delicious, soft, and chewy!

These cookies were even soft and chewy 2 days after I made them. 

Another reason to love these cookies…scoop out the batter into small balls and freeze them to enjoy later. You only have to cook them for another minute. 

 

I also have a huge cookie sheet that makes it fast to make a bunch of cookies. 

 

Keep scrolling to find the full printable recipe below.

Preheat your oven to 325*. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

 

In a standing mixer, blend butter, and sugars. Once blended, add the eggs and vanilla extract. 

 

In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients. (Tip – if you have a flour sifter, use that to sift your flour as you measure it out into a mixing bowl.)

 

 

Add the M&Ms into the mix and stir to combine. 

 

 

I use a medium cookie scoop and drop them onto the cookie sheet, about an inch apart. 

 

 

Bake for 8-9 minutes. They may not look done – but you do not want to overcook them. 

 

Let them sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. 

 

 

Repeat until you have baked all the dough or freeze the dough balls for future baking.
