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.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- 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.
- Use a cookie scoop or make 2" round balls. An ice cream scoops is a good substitute for a cookie scoop.
- I like to use a silicone baking mat on a cookie sheet. Parchment works too.
- Place 6 cookies on the cookie sheet.
- When you place the cookies in the oven, set the timer for 10 minutes.
- At 10 minutes remove the cookie sheet from the oven, and leave the cookies on it.
- 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.
- Sprinkle just a little salt on top of the cookies.
- 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!
