once again, chocolate cookies

i was looking for inspiration for something to bake, and came across the simple, classic chocolate cookie. i decided to have a little fun with it and use some left over candy for half of them, so they are m&m cookies, but the other half are good old classics. chocolate chip cookies.

Chocolate chip cookies:
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup m&m's (or substitute 1/2 cup chocolate chips if you don't want the m&ms.)

  • preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • place the butter in the mixer, and mix for a few minutes
  • mix in sugars, vanilla, egg.
  • mix in flour and baking powder a little at a time until mixed in
  • half the mixture and mix in m&m's and chocolate chips into each half.
  • place tablespoon of the mixture onto baking sheets.
  • bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
