M&M&M&mmmmmm cookies

27 Jan

I made these cookies several days ago, using a slightly-modified recipe from JoyofBaking.com.  All modifications were made from sheer laziness.  I used ‘self-rising’ flour and added the candies right in to the batter; then simply rolled the dough into balls and dropped on the sheets instead of the whole flattening-out bit.  So they look different, but the taste … well, there weren’t any left by the end of the day.  Also, my scoops were smaller, and I got slightly over 2 dozen cookies from this recipe, not just 15.

2 C self-rising flour
1/4 t salt
3/4 C unsalted butter
2/3 C sugar
2/3 C brown sugar
1 egg + 1 egg yolk
1 t vanilla extract
1 C m&m candies

Start with the ingredients!

Hmm?  Yes, I am showing off my new Emma Bridgewater Diamond Jubilee tea towel.

The dough will be very dough-y.  Like playdough.  Very easy to pinch off into balls.

Line them all up and bake in a 350F oven for about 15 minutes.

And then show off your new tea towel again as they cool.  Delicious.

    This makes me hungry. Most of your posts make me hungry, even if they aren’t about food, because I can imagine what you are baking or cooking and then I’m hungry. And I want to see your face again, because I remember you and I remember you being one of the sweetest persons I ever met, and then I remember the food again. And then I’m hungry. Always hungry here. Feed me, Monique.

      LOL. I’m not that sweet, except for all the baking sugar. Meet you in a misty Avebury with cookies and coffee?

        You bring the cookies, and there’s a lovely little shop with hot chocolate, tea, and scones with clotted cream and jam, of course. 😉

    P.S. When you are blog famous and get invited to BlogHer, can I invite myself along? I’ll pay my own way. HELL, I’ll pay YOUR way! 🙂

      You are so crazy, and always make me smile! You write your ‘notes from christmas’ — I’m sure you’ll have a better title — and *I’ll* carry *your* bags on your book tour!

    A good little cookie is always a good thing. My kids would enjoy these.

      Hi and thanks for coming by! These are kids-magnets, and easy for kids to help make, too. Bonus!

    Mmmmm cookies. I love cookies. I baked more often when I worked in an office and could take the majority of whatever I made and inflict them on other people’s waistlines. These look great!

      It’s good there are five of us to spread the cookies around … two dozen/5 people doesn’t last long. How awesome to be a co-worker on the receiving end of YOUR cookies!
