Recipe of the Week #55- M&M Sugar Cookies

M and M Sugar Cookies
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar, plus 1/3 cup for rolling
2 oz cream cheese, cut into 8 pieces
6 tbsp butter, melted and still warm
1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
1 large egg
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons vanilla 
1-1 1/4 cups M and Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Put 1/3 cup sugar in a pie plate and set aside.

Combine 1 1/2 cups of sugar and cream cheese in a large bowl. Pour in the warm butter and whisk to combine. Whisk in the oil, then the egg, milk, and vanilla and mix until smooth.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet. While mixing them together, add the M and Ms to the dough. Continue mixing until a soft dough comes together. Do not overstir. Refrigerate 2-3 hours.

Roll the dough into a balls and roll in the sugar.
Flatten the dough balls. Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes. Do not overbake- these should be soft, chewy cookies.

These cookies are fantastic! I've made M and M cookies before, but I think the cream cheese in this recipe is what puts these over the top! These did not last long at our house!

I found this recipe here.

Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
but a woman who fears the Lord,
she shall be praised.
Proverbs 31:30
