M&M Cookies

This might be the easiest cookie recipe of them all!

My husband loves M&M cookies and I think the mini M&M’s are the best. I combined the two and created these super easy cookies. They look great and taste great!

The key to getting the super colorful exterior as smooshing a few extra M&M’s on the outside of the dough before baking!

I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup mini baking M&M's plus extra for outside


  • Heat oven to 350 °F.
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugars. On my mixer I used my paddle attachment and set my speed to low for 30 seconds, medium for 30 seconds, and then high for 30 seconds. It came out creamed and fluffy.
  • Add eggs one at a time.
  • Add vanilla, cake flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, and mix for one minute until fully incorporated.
  • Fold in mini M&M's.
  • Scoop out cookie dough onto the parchment paper (heaping scoop ~2T).
  • Press in extra mini M&M's on the exterior of the dough.
  • Do not overcrowd the sheet pan. I put ~6-8 cookies on a sheet pan.
  • Cook for ten minutes or until dough becomes golden brown.
  • Let rest for 3-5 minutes and ENJOY!
