Best Cookies Ever

Hello Everyone!  Rene here.

I've made these cookies to share at God's Closet and fellowship before, and today we enjoyed them during our getting-to-know-you session with Samantha and Malina.  Since they are the best cookies ever, I thought I would share the recipe!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup Imperial Margarine (you can use butter, but I like the way margarine works in this recipe)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 large bag peanut butter m&ms (you could use Reses' Pieces, but I find the M&M are better for this cookie)
Sea salt to taste.

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour and baking soda in small bowl. Beat melted margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chips and M&Ms.
  3. Use a cookie scoop or make 2" round balls.  An ice cream scoops is a good substitute for a cookie scoop.  
  4. I like to use a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet.  Parchment works too.
  5. Place 6 cookies on the cookie sheet.
  6. When you place the cookies in the oven, set the timer for 10 minutes.  
  7. At 10 minutes remove the cookie sheet from the oven, and leave the cookies on it.  
  8. Take the cookies from the previous batch, and move them to a cooling spot.  I use a big sheet of brown craft paper placed on the table.  Paper is nice because it soaks up some excess grease.
  9. Sprinkle just a little salt on top of the cookies.
  10. Return to step 5 and repeat until all the cookies are done.

The trick to these cookies is underbaking them just a little.  They will not look "done" when you take them out of the oven.  Also, sprinkling the salt on top rather than putting it in the dough gives a really nice sweet/salty thing.  Enjoy!
