Peanut Butter M & M Cookies
The only thing better than Peanut Butter Cookies are these Peanut Butter M&M Cookies! They're super easy to make, freeze well, and are perfect to make anytime your sweet tooth strikes. Soft, chewy and buttery these are my go to cookies!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup light brown sugar
- 1/4 granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- pinch salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup M & M's
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment cream butter and both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Add in peanut butter and mix for 1-2 minutes.
Add in egg and vanilla. Mix until combined and clump free.
Add flour, salt and baking soda to the stand mixer on the lowest speed. Mix just until incorporated. Make sure not to overmix.
Fold in M & M's by hand.
Portion heaping tablespoon size cookies onto prepared baking sheet. Using your fingers gently flatten the cookies. This will help the cookies spread as they cook.
Bake cookies for 8-9 minutes or until lightly golden brown and firm on the edges. Remove from the oven and let set for 5 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. I always like to slightly under bake my cookies. They will continue to cook as they cool.
Serve immediately with a tall glass of milk and enjoy!
