Chocolate M&M Cookies

Chocolate M&M Cookies
Adpated from Martha Stewart's Cookies
Makes about 1 ½ dozen

1 cup plus 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/4 cup for rolling
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¾ to 1 cup M&Ms

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner; set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat to combine. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture until just combined. Fold in M&Ms by hand.
4. Place about ¼ cup of sugar into a small bowl. With a heaping tablespoon or a 1-inch cookie scoop, shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in sugar to coat and transfer to prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake, rotating pans halfway through until the tops look crackled and the edges are set, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
