Thick n Chewy M&M Valentines Day Cookies



Thick n Chewy M&M Valentines Day Cookies
Recipe found at Grumpy's Honey Bunch

1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups M&M candies
In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and brown sugar until well blended. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. (I did this by hand)

In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in M&M's

Drop dough in 2-tablespoon (1/8-cup) portions, 2 inches apart, onto buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. (I made my nice and big instead I got 18)

Bake in a 400° oven until cookies are lightly browned and no longer wet in the center (break one open to check), 6 to 8 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. (I still bake 6-8 minutes - they don't seem to get too brown to me - but I always check at 6 minutes first because after the first batch it can take less time)

With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool. If hot cookies start to break, slide a thin spatula under them to release; let stand on pan to firm up, 2 to 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely

Thanks for the offer of help at Lazy Days and Sundays. I played around with that photo after I posted about my header problem. The picture is distorted a bit, but I had to stop playing a while and get on to other things.

I like the looks of your blogs. I'll definitely be back here to check out recipes. :)
