One thing that I am sucker for is a big, soft, and thick bakery style cookie. One thing that I am not a sucker for is the bakery style prices most places charge. I mean, you can easily pay $2-$5 per cookie! I decided to remedy this little dilemma by coming up with a bakery style cookie recipe that I could make at home for a fraction of the cost that I would pay at a specialty bakery. ;)

It is really no big secret that I am fan of all the cookie butter things. (My Cookie Butter Pecan Fudge, Biscoff Gingersnap Brownies, and Homemade Biscoff Flavored Coffee Creamer are all cases in point.) So, I packed these palm-sized cookies full of cookie butter spread and for good measure, lots of M&M's candies. :)

Prep Time: 55 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
Ingredients (9-12 cookies)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup cookie butter (or Biscoff spread)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup milk chocolate M&M's candies
Instructions
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the egg, brown sugar, cookie butter, butter, & vanilla extract until light & fluffy (about 4-5 minutes).
Add in the flour, baking soda, & salt, and mix until just incorporated.
Fold in the M&M's candies. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours (or do like I do, and put the bowl in the freezer for 45 minutes).

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Once your dough has chilled, scoop or roll the dough into 2 1/2 inch balls or mounds of cookie dough and place on the prepared cookie sheet at least 3 inches apart (yes 3, these cookies are big). Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are just set. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool to warm.
Best served warm. Enjoy!

Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
