M&M's Christmas Cookie Recipe


  • 1 cup of butter at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups regular all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 12- ounce package of M&Ms I used green and red for Christmas but you can make these year round with any color!
  • 12 ounce package of Mini Chocolate Chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars, then beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda and salt, then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix well.
  4. Add M&M's and Mini Chocolate Chips and either mix by hand or mix in the mixer - I mixed them in the mixer and I like the way there were a little bit of broken M&M pieces in the cookies!
  5. Using teaspoons, drop cookies of about one teaspoon onto cookie sheets making them about two inches apart. I used parchment paper over my pan because it was not nonstick - if you aren't using parchment paper or a nonstick pan, I suggest greasing your cookie sheet lightly.
  6. Bake for 11 minutes for a cookie that is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside, or 12-13 minutes for a crispier cookie!
