M&M sugar cookies

    One Thanksgiving meal down, two to go! We really like our Thanksgiving food here at my house. Thanksgiving food in itself gives you quite a satisfying reason to be thankful. If I had to choose between never eating turkey or chocolate again, I would be in quite the pickle. Speaking of chocolate, I made M&M cookies last night! I found this recipe on Little Miss Mommas blog and couldn't wait to try it out. So, I journeyed to the grocery store to stock up on M&M's and a whole lot of sugar.

      Before...                                                                                         After!

Aren't they just the cutest things?!

Here is the recipe:   { For picture of the step by step process head over to Little Miss Momma's blog }

1 and 1/2 cups sugar
2 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/4 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 large eggs
3 cups M&M’s
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder and set aside
2. In a large bowl, beat on medium speed to combine the butter and sugar until creamy
3. Add vanilla and eggs and beat until well blended
4. Slowly add in the flour mixture a little at a time

Wet your hands and roll about 1 and 1/2 – 2 tablespoon of cookie dough into a ball and place on cookie sheet. Make sure you wet your hands or they will become a sticky mess! (Learnt from experience.)
Be sure to leave plenty of space between cookies, they will spread out quite a lot.
Place as many M&Ms as you desire onto each ball.
Bake for around 10- 13 minutes or until the M&M's crack open and the cookies have slightly browned. Let the cookies cool down for 10 minutes before taking them off the parchment.

Happy baking!

Much love, Vivi
