    Heather3271's Note:

    These cookies are a HUGE hit and never last long. Another winner from "Emeril's There's a Chef in My Soup! Recipes for the Kid in Everyone" (2002). We bought this book for our children when they were younger, and it played a key role in their now blooming passions for food and cooking. Of course, the apple never falls too far from the tree! :D You'll notice that the directions are written with children in mind, which makes this a wonderful recipe for beginner chefs! Enjoy!!

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Make sure the oven rack is in the center position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    2. 2
      Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium mixing bowl. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Place the butter, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and cream the ingredients on high speed.
    4. 4
      Add the vanilla and egg to the mixer and mix on medium speed.
    5. 5
      Stop the mixer and scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Add the flour mixture and combine on low speed. It's important to do this on low or you'll get flour all over the kitchen!
    6. 6
      Stop the mixer and, using a large spoon or rubber spatula, fold in both kinds of M&M's.
    7. 7
      With a tablespoon, form the dough into balls, using about 2 spoonfuls for each.
    8. 8
      Divide the balls of dough among three large baking sheets and press to slightly flatten, keeping the cookies about 2 inches apart. You should get 8 cookies on each sheet.
    9. 9
      Bake in batches in the oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
    10. 10
      Using oven mitts or pot holders, remove the cookies from the oven and transfer them with a plastic turner to wire racks to cool.

      Good cookies. My spread a little more than I would have liked -- and the edges were a bit on the crisp side. I accidently picked up the almond M&M's instead of the peanut ones. I'll watch more closely the next time.

      THESE ARE THE BEST COOKIES I HAVE MADE. I am very excited about how they came out. My son has been wanting to take a big cookie to school for snack. The grocery store here doesn't sell them, and I forget everytime I go to the gas station. Thank-you for sharing.

      I would have given this recipe a higher score but even though I did not overbake them, they came out very crunchy. I just put my M&M's on top of the cookies after slightly flattening. I prefer a cookie that is crispy outside and chewier inside.
