M&M Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from www.CrazyforCrust.com


2 sticks butter

1 cup granulated sugar

¾ cup light brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup chocolate chips

1 cup M&Ms (any kind)

1 cup chopped almonds



1.       Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Pour into an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. While still hot, add both sugars and mix on low until combined. Let sit to cool for a few minutes.

2.       While butter mixture is cooling, combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Stir and set aside.

3.       Turn mixer (with butter mixture bowl attached) on low. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing completely.  Mix in vanilla extract. Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips, M&Ms, and chopped almonds; stir to combine.

4.       Chill for 30 minutes to one hour, until cooled.

5.       Preheat oven to 350°. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on size). Cookies made from my 2-tablespoon cookie scoop baked in 11 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from pans to cool completely.


Yield: 3 dozen
