Peanut Butter M&M Cookies for St. Patty’s Day

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies for St. Patty’s Day

Yes, I picked out the greens and oranges from two bags of M&M’s. Such measures are perfectly applaudable on or around St. Patrick’s day.

These chewy, bite sized peanut butter cookies were exceptionally complimentary to the flavor and shape of classic M&M goodness. Needless to say, they were almost gone from the tray so quickly that I had to hunt down the host of the party that I attended to make sure he got to try one.

I left the very last one for my boyfriend on a notebook on his desk, and shortly thereafter all that was left were the buttery remains:

Over all, these were delicious and easy to pull-off; a classic wet ingredients/dry ingredients cookie recipe that I adapted from TheCurvyCarrot, which they had adapted from someone else, who had adapted it from someone else, who probably adapted it from a recipe that they found right on a bag of M&M’s in the first place. Classics like this don’t need much tweaking, so long as the secret ingredient is love (and a bit of holiday cheer). Erin Go Bragh, from your favorite nice Jewish girl in her East Village kitchen!

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies for St. Patty’s Day
  • 1 and ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons cream
  • 1 and ½ cups M&M’s
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda, whisking until combined. Set aside.
  3. With a standing or electric hand mixer fitted with a paddle or dough attachment, cream the butter on medium high speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the sugars and peanut butter, mixing until smooth, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Reduce the mixer speed and add the egg, vanilla, and cream, mixing until completely combined. Slowly add the dry flour mixture, until one solid, even ball of dough is formed.
  5. Using a rubber spatula, gently stir in the M&Ms until evenly distributed.
  6. Drop the cookie dough by rounded tablespoons onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper, and bake the cookies until lightly golden around the edges, 9-10 minutes. Let cool completely.
