Springtime Pink M&M Cookies
Spring! The flowers are blooming. Easter is coming. We love it! This year we are celebrating with a batch or these pretty Springtime Pink M&M Cookies. Soft, chewy, chocolately and so very easy to make.
How to make Springtime Pink M&M Cookies
You will need:
- 1 cup Butter (softened)
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 large Eggs
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 package Easter M&M’s
- Wilton Color Right Food Coloring – Pink
- Cookie Sheets
We decorated our Springtime Pink M&M Cookies with the Easter Bunny M&M’s that are available in Spring. You can find them in the Easter Candy aisle at Grocery stores, Target and Wal-Mart.
Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined. Add 3 drops of Pink food coloring and mix until combined. Finally, mix in the salt, baking soda and flour.
Take a heaping tablespoon of cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Place the cookie dough balls approximately 2″ apart on the cookie sheet. Lightly press down on the ball to slightly flatten the cookie dough before baking. Press the Easter M&M’s onto the cookie dough ball. This will allow the colorful M&M’s to show up on the top of the baked Springtime Pink M&M Cookies. Bake the cookies in a 375 degree oven for 10-11 minutes.
So pretty … so yummy!
Kids and adults alike will love these fun Springtime Pink M&M Cookies … and nobody has to know how easy they are to make.
