M & M Cookie Bar

This cookie bar recipe is dangerously simple, I do not let myself make it often because if it was up to me I would make this at least once a week.  This is the perfect chewy cookie bar.  Make these festive for any holiday/occasion by using holiday M & M colors instead of the normal ones.

M & M Cookie Bar

-2 1/8 cups flour

-1/2 teaspoon salt

-1/2 teaspoon baking soda

-1 1/2 sticks softened butter

-1 cup brown sugar

-1/2 cup white sugar

-2 large eggs

-2 teaspoons vanilla

-12 oz. bag of M & M's

Start by combining the flour, salt and baking soda.  In another bowl using a hand mixer combine the softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy.  Then add the eggs and vanilla and mix well.  Finally add the dry ingredients and incorporate but do not over mix.  Stir in 1 cup of M & M's, then press the dough into a greased 9x13 baking dish.  Sprinkle the rest of the M & M's on top and press lightly into the dough.  Bake in a 325 oven for 20-25 minutes.
