Kid's Candy Cookies
I recently found this recipe in the May issue of The Food Network Magazine. I DIED when I saw them, and had to try my hand at making them. I made a few changes to the list of ingredients, and love how they turned out!
2 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 sticks butter, at room temperature
1 c packed brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 TBSP vanilla
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 c plain M&M'S
3 oz mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup toffee pieces
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
Cream the butter, brown sugar and white sugar in mixer on low speed until incorporated, then increase to high speed and beat until light and fluffy.
Add the salt, vanilla, whole egg and egg yolk to the mixer; beat until thoroughly combined. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing on low speed until just combined. Mix in the semi-sweet chocolate chips, toffee pieces, peanut butter chips, and M&M's.
Bake the cookies until the edges are golden brown and the centers are no longer wet, 11 to 13 minutes. Cool completely before serving.
Comments from the cook: These were a major home-run at our house, and will find their way to many BBQs and parties from now on...where they can be enjoyed but SHARED! A whole batch is too big for 2 of us :)
