Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

My son’s piano teacher gave him an incentive to learn his notes this week by offering him Peanut Butter M&M’s once he memorized so many flash cards.  I love Peanut Butter M&M’s and started thinking.  Wouldn’t a peanut butter cookie just be over the top with PB M&M’s in them?

I pulled out my favorite PB Cookie recipe and bought a 12 oz bag of the special M&M’s and gave them a try.  Everyone gave them a thumbs up!

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 ozs of your favorite add in {M&M’s, chocolate chips…}

Sift flour and baking soda together, set aside.

In another bowl cream together butter, peanut butter, sugar, and brown sugar.  Add egg and vanilla.  Slowly add in the dry ingredients, mixing until the dough is firm.  If the dough is too dry, add water by the tablespoon {but no more than 1/4 cup} until it is moist. Fold in M&M’s.

If you can wait, chill dough for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350. Using a cookie scoop or teaspoons, drop dough onto cookie sheet at least 1 inch apart.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  Allow to cool before serving.
