Eggless M&M Cookies

Eggless M&M Cookies

It had been my long time wish to bake these colorful cookies that I chance upon in the internet frequently. Finally made it last week and they turned out absolutely great, just the way I wished a perfect cookie to be. Slightly crisp around the edges and chewy in the middle and around. I did not even get a chance to store them. All were gone within minutes of taking them from the oven. When I surfed the net for the recipe all of them had eggs in them and though I do not have any objection to using eggs, my thought was, why add an extra ingredient when you can still get the result without having to add it. So I just followed my eggless chocolate chip cookie and found it to work well.

You can check out the eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe if you wish for a step by step pictorial. I was not well so skipped the step wise clicks. But I wonder you would really need any as these cookies are so easy to prepare.

Eggless M&M Cookies

Prep Time: 5 Mins
Bake Time: 20 Mins
Makes: 16

 

Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour – 240 gms
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 1/8 tsp
  • Butter – 100 gms
  • White granule Sugar – 50 gms
  • Brown sugar – 50 gms
  • Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
  • M&M’s, divided – 150 gms

 

Instructions:

1. Pre heat oven @ 180 Degrees Celsius.

2. Mix together flour, baking soda and salt and keep aside.

3. Using a hand held mixer beat butter and both the sugars in a mixing bowl till creamy and light. Add vanilla essence and beat once more until incorporated. You can also do this by hand.

4. Switch to a spatula and scrape down the sides. Add the flour mixture, 100 gms M&M’s and mix well.

5. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour or until the dough is firm to the touch.

6. Make small balls and arrange on a cookie tray leaving 2 inch gap between each of them. They do spread around.

7. Flatten the balls slightly with the bottom of a glass and push some remaining M&M’s on top of the flattened cookies.

8. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

9. Once done take out and let it cool for 5 minutes in the tray on a wire rack.

10. Transfer to a plate and let it cool completely to room temperature. Store in airtight box and enjoy!!!

 

Notes:

  • Make sure that the butter is at room temperature.
  • You can skip the white sugar and use brown sugar instead or vice versa.
  • If you do not have M&M’s or Smarties as they known, use any other colored candy.
  • Oven timings will vary accordingly.
