M&M's® Marshmallow Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Author: Sarah Bates | The Chef Next Door

Makes 30 cookies {15 cookie sandwiches}


Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1/2 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract

2 cups M&M's® Pastel Chocolate Candies

1 container marshmallow cream


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside. 


In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt.  In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the butter and both sugars and beat until fluffy and pale in color. Add the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixer and stir just until combined. Gently fold in the M&M's® pastel with a rubber spatula.


Using a scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until the edges start to brown. The cookies will be slightly underdone in the center but they will set once they are cooled. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then place them on a baking sheet to cool completely. 


Once the cookies are cooled completely, turn half of them upside down and place a large teaspoonful of the marshmallow cream in the center of each cookie. Top them with another cookie, bottom side down, to make a sandwich. Gently press the cookies together so that the cream spreads to the edges.
