My husband has been wanting me to use that bag of M & M's in the cabinet for the past two weeks so, I decided to surprise him and make some M & M cookies tonight. As I was gathering all the ingredients... I realize I was missing one just thing, brown sugar. I quickly hopped on the internet and found a video with directions and made my own. It was really quite simple. Just take 2 cups of white sugar and mix it very well with 1/3 cup of molasses. Now that I had all the ingredients I set to work at making my loving first husband some delicious cookies. Here's all you need ( and yes, I did measure because as I always say: cooking is an art, have fun. Baking is a science, there is no room for creativity) : 2 sticks of softened butter beat with 3/4 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of brown sugar. When light and fluffy start adding 1 tsp vanilla and 2 eggs (straight from the chickens bum) , mix well, then add 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt and 2 1/2 cup of flour. I usually and 1/2 a cup at time mixing well before adding any more. Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for 10 minutes or until brown around the edges. I like to bake a few at a time and keep the rest in a covered container in the frig. That way we can have fresh baked cookies hot from the oven anytime we want.
