Soft-Batch-M & M-Cookies

I LOVE soft chewy home made cookies.

Make them chocolate chip and throw in the promise that they’ll also be fluffy and you bet I’m going to try them.

Well, after seeing this recipe for what seems like a million times on Pinterest, I decided it was beyond time to give these cookies a try!

Easy Peasy!

Let’s turn them into soft, chewy, fluffy M & M cookies.

These are SUPER yummy and perfect to make any time of the year.

Recipe Notes: 

Cornstarch is the secret ingredient in these cookies that makes them soft and fluffy.

Who knew that good ol’ corn starch could become such a magical little ingredient!

Make sure that your baking soda and cornstarch are fresh so the cookies will be soft and fluffy.

I live on the coast and find that I need to replace them more often than I did when I lived inland.

The added moisture in the air must do something to them.

This recipe calls for a greater amount of brown sugar than white sugar.

The larger quantity of brown sugar also helps makes the cookies soft and chewy.

These cookies will be baked when the center just looses it’s wet look and the edges begin to brown.

Don’t expect them to brown overall like many chocolate chip cookies or they will be over baked and dry.

Chop the M&M’s coarsely with a chefs knife.

Don’t chop them in a food processor because the food processor breaks up the candy shell too much and you loose the attractive chunks to mix into the dought.
