Description

Chewy, sugary, sweet chocolate candy filled cookies. First to go on your baking tray! Gotta make this Christmas!

Ingredients

  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1-½ cup Sugar (plus 1/3 Cup For Rolling Dough In)
  • 2 ounces, weight Cream Cheese Cut Into Little Pieces
  • 6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Melted - Still Warm
  • ⅓ cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1  Large Egg, Room Temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon Milk
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup M & M's Candies (plain)

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

3. Combine 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl. Put the remaining 1/3 cup sugar in a plate and set aside. Pour the warm butter over the cream cheese mixture and beat on low to combine—the mixture won’t be completely smooth yet. Beat in the oil then the egg, milk and vanilla extract until smooth.

4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. When the dry ingredients are partially incorporated, add 3/4 cup of the M&M’s to the dough. Continue mixing until a soft dough comes together.

5. Using a tablespoon scoop out some dough. Roll the dough into a ball and then roll the ball in the plate of sugar. Put the balls onto the prepared baking tray leaving an inch or two between. Flatten the balls of dough with a glass.

6. Bake cookies 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are set (not browned!)

7. Remove cookies from oven and press 3 more M & M’s on top. This makes them look pretty!

8. Cool and enjoy with milk or hot chocolate!
