Soft M&M Cookies – simply delicious cookies that you have to make for your Valentine!
I think we need 10 more hours in a day. I know I do for sure! There is just so much to do and not enough time! The evenings are the busiest – it’s dinner (from scratch almost every day), it’s bath time, it’s bed-time stories, it’s the clean-up. Ooooh, how I dislike doing dishes. Just ask my Hubby. I complain. Every.time. But then I get up in the morning to a clean kitchen and that always makes me happy!
So what I am trying to say is – send a cleaning fairy. I am paying in cookies!!
Because there is always time to make cookies. When I announced to my girls the idea of Valentine’s Day M&M cookies – they jumped for joy! My son was busy playing hot wheels with daddy. :). Of course, the boys were not too busy to devour a few. These cookies were a huge hit! Soft (thanks to cornstarch) with a crunch from the M&M’s. All in Valentine’s Day color theme, of course.
Notes on the recipe:
– The cookies will puff up during baking but will deflate a little while cooling.
– The cookies are soft but not cakey.
– I suggest leaving about 1/4 of a cup of M&M’s to place them on top of the baked cookies, while they are still hot. The candy will stick to them without sinking. And the cookies will be so pretty!
