One of my favorite bloggers, Maria, over at Two Peas and Their Pod is a baking genius! I recently purchased her Cookie Cravings cookbook, along with the Holiday edition, and I'm hooked. I literally cannot wait to try each and every one of her recipes!
Last week she posted a recipe for White Chocolate Peppermint M&M Cookies and I just knew I had to have them. My recipe is just slightly tweaked as I swapped out a couple of the candy ingredients. You can find her original recipe in the link above, and below is my version:
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
1 cup Mint Chocolate M&M's
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and set aside. Cream butter and sugars together in a stand mixer until combined. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients. Stir in the white chocolate chips, baking chips and M&M's with a wooden spoon.
Using a cookie scoop, drop scoopfuls of dough on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
