Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Chill 3 hours
Servings 24 cookies


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp table salt
  • 1 cup butter- softened
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup M&M’s of choice + more for tops


  • Combine the flour, salt & baking powder into a bowl, mix and set aside.
  • In a mixer bowl, cream together the softened butter & sugar.
  • Once smooth, add the eggs & vanilla and beat well.
  • Fold in the M&M’s.
  • Form the dough into a log and then wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours but overnight is best.
  • Once chilled, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Slice the dough into rounds to your desired thickness. The thinner the blade used to slice them, the better. A thick blade will tend to squish the dough.
  • Place the rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • I usually add a few more whole M&M”s to the tops of the cookies at this time.
  • Bake in the center of a preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 8-10 minutes.
