M & M Cookies

M&M cookies 1

This is definitely an oldie but goodie.  If you haven’t made these for a while, you’re missing out.  I always forget how good they are.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 12-ounce package m&m’s


Cream together margarine and sugars.  Add egg and vanilla.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt.  Add m&m’s.

Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls about 2-inches apart on ungreased pans. Bake at 350 for 10-13 minutes until edges are light brown and centers still soft.


  • I added a little bit of flour so the dough was stiffer and the cookies didn’t spread while baking.
  • I haven’t been able to find m&m’s in the baking aisle for quite a while so I’ve been getting the mini’s in the candy aisle.
  • My cookies were a little bit smaller (I used my cookie scoop) so I only baked them 8 minutes.
