3 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks salted butter, room temperature, totally softened
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3 eggs, room temp
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 bags M&Ms
*NOTES: I like my cookies super chocolatey so I add a TON of M&Ms…go for as few or as many as you’d like.
Recipe: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine the first three dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt) and set aside. In another bowl cream the butter and the sugars. Beat for about 4 minutes, until well combined and light. Add eggs one at a time and continue to beat throughout the addition. Add vanilla. Beat for about 7 minutes on medium speed, until the mixture grows inside and is very fluffy and creamy. Slow down the speed and add the flour mixture in batches. Mix in the M&Ms by hand. Roll dough in seran wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Grease a baking sheet and spoon healthy heaps of dough 2 inches apart from each other, making sure not to crowd. Bake for about 12-15 minutes, until cookie edges are golden and center is barely firm.
