This is another version of the Kids party cookies that Ive posted. Both are simply out of the world but my DH loves this more coz loads n loads of M & M's...
Butter: 1 cup/ 200 gms/ 2 sticks
Granulated Sugar: 1 cup
Brown Sugar: 1 cup
Vanilla: 1 tsp
Salt: 1/4 tsp
All Purpose Flour: 2 cups
Baking Powder: 1 tsp
Chopped Nuts: 3/4 cup (optional, I dont add coz kids wont eat...)
M&M's: 5 packs
Preheat oven to 180C
Mix together flour, salt and baking powder and keep aside.
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Add the flour mix to it and work your electric mixer at speed 1
Now add the nuts and 3 packs of M&M's and beat again at speed 1
(no, the candy never broke to pieces for me)
Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.
You can decorate the top of the cookies again with the left over M&M's
Bake 15-18 minutes (keep an eye after 12 minutes) or until edges are lightly browned and centers are still soft.
It will get firm as it cools. Do not overbake.
Once cool, Store in tightly covered container.
