Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup (80g) all-purpose flour measured by weight or the spoon and sweep method*
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (2oz) unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/3 cup (66g) brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (25g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup M&Ms

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together (properly measured) flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together cooled butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well-combined. Add vanilla and egg yolk and whisk until smooth.
  4. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Fold in M&Ms. Drop six rounded spoonfuls onto your prepared baking sheet (for perfectly round cookies, roll into balls) and bake for 9 to 12 minutes, until cookies look set. Allow to cool on the baking sheet and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*To measure using the Spoon and Sweep Method, spoon flour into your measuring cup and sweep excess off with the flat of a knife. This will give you the most accurate measurement next to weighing.
