    How to make M&M Cookies, chopping M&Ms
  • In a large bowl, using a hand-held electric mixer, cream together butter and both sugars. Mix in egg and vanilla.
  • Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and mix until just combined. Stir in chopped M & M's.
  • Use a cookie scoop (1 tablespoon size ) to form dough into balls and space evenly on a greased or Silpat lined cookie sheet. Press 4-5 M&M's into the face of each dough ball. Bake for 8-10 minutes or just until the edges start to brown.
