Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 9 mins


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 yolk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups M&Ms


  • Heat oven to 425°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda. Add the M&Ms and whisk to combine.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the melted butter and the sugars until well combined. Whisk in the egg, yolk and vanilla until well combined. Add the With a flexible spatula, gently fold in the dry ingredients in until just combined.
  • Scoop 1/4 cup balls of dough using an ice cream scoop or dry measuring cup and evenly space the dough balls on the prepared sheets.
  • Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time (or, better yet, only bake off as many dough balls as you plan on eating, and freeze the rest on the cookie sheet, transferring them to a zippered plastic bag once they are frozen - add a few minutes to the bake-time when baking from frozen) for about 8 to 10 minutes. Cookies might seem a little light in color at this point, but they will be excellent - don't worry.
  • Let them cool about 5 minutes before eating them (and writing me a thank you letter).
