(White Chocolate) M & M Sugar Cookies

Printable Recipe

Adapted from Jamie Cooks It Up

These are excellent cookies! 

1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
dash salt
1 (12-oz) bag M&Ms (I used the White Chocolate M&Ms ... the bags only come in one size, and I used about 1 1/2 bags.  These may only be seasonal; but I'm sure these cookies would be great with the plain M&ms or any other flavor M&M, you may want to try.)

sugar for rolling the cookies in before baking.

Cream the butter and 1 1/2 cup of sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat for another 2 minutes.  Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt and stir into the cookie dough in thirds, beating just until combined.  Stir in the M&Ms by hand.

Form into balls, about 2" in size, and roll in in the sugar.  I made some cookies plain, without the M&Ms, and those, I flattened slightly with the bottom of a glass.  They turned out quite flat.  The ones with the M&Ms, were thicker, mostly because I did not flatten them.  Bake 350° for about 8 minutes, or until just beginning to brown around the edges.  Allow to cool a few minutes on the baking sheet and then finish cooling them on a wire rack.
