R & R Workshop: M&M Cookies & Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap!

M&M Cookies & Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap!

I'm excited to be part of the 3rd Annual Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap. I'm joining with many bloggers today to share cookie recipes!  We each were partnered with another blogger to try out their cookie recipe. I was partnered with Alli from Cupcakes Diaries! Alli is a mom to 3 young boys and is always posting yummy recipes! I want to pin them all! I hope you check out her fun blog :)

The recipe Alli sent me is Christmas M&M Cookies. We love M&Ms and cookies at our house so this was a win-win for us. But Alli's recipe adds a twist to the cookies- vanilla pudding mix. This was my first time eating cookies with pudding mix in them but I have to say- it added so much flavor!
And the dough was yummy too :) My hubby bought regular m&ms instead of christmas kind.. but both work and still taste yummy :)

Christmas M&M Cookies
By Ali from Cupcake Diaries

1 c. butter, at room temperature
2 eggs
1 c. sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
2 c. flour
1 c. Christmas M&M's

1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars. Then add egg and vanilla.
(*Just a tip: Make sure your butter is at room temperature. DON'T put it in the microwave to speed up the process. This will make your cookies flat and not rise as well.) 
2. In a small bowl, stir together salt, baking soda and pudding mix. Add dry mixture to butter mixture, then slowly add flour.
3. Mix m&m's into mixture with wooden spoon. Cover and put into refrigerator while oven pre-heats to 375*.
4. Drop dough by the spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Add a few more m&ms into dough if needed. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until lightly brown.
5. Enjoy! 

Don't forget to check out all the cookies in the swap below! You can also see more cookie recipes at White Lights on Wednesday.
