m&m Cookies

Two of our grandsons recently stayed with us for a few days and we had a lot of fun!  
One activity that they really wanted to do was make cookies:) They kept eyeballing the bag of mini m&m's in my big "goodie" drawer, so I knew they'd love these cookies. 
(I used the iPad to follow the recipe online.)
Look at all those mini m&m's and mini chocolate chips!

They're a drop cookie and came together quickly, which was a good thing since the boys were anxious to try them.  I must admit, I was too!
 I found the best looking m&m cookies on Picky Palate, so used her recipe.
With the dough as an indicator, the boys and I knew the cookies would be delicious! 
Two things I will do differently next time:  Trust the baking time (do not overbake!), and do not flatten the cookies at all before baking. 
This recipe adds a "secret ingredient" to ensure that the cookies turn out chewy in the middle, but crispy on the edges. They were especially good when they were fresh:)
These happy faces don't lie! :)

Visit Picky Palate for this yummy recipe and so many others!

ENJOY!
