No one can resist these M&M Christmas Cookies – they are soft, chewy, and loaded with chocolate.
One of my very favorite things to make is cookies. I can pass up candy, but fresh baked cookies? Not so much. With Christmas just around the corner, I am already thinking about neighbor gifts. I love giving homemade goodies to our neighbors, so I decided to share some cookie recipes.
Every day this week I will be sharing a different cookie recipe, so if you love cookies like I do, stay tuned! Today I am sharing a perfect Christmas cookie recipe– M&M Chocolate Chip Cookies!
The red and green M&M’s make these cookies look so festive. And they add to the fun factor. My kids always sort through the batch looking for the cookie that has the MOST M&Ms. Every time.
These chocolate chip cookies are soft and chewy, just like I like them. The lemon juice seems a little strange, but you can’t taste it. It just performs some kind of chemical magic trick and makes the cookies pretty and puffy. Promise.
If you don’t have M&M’s, these also make fabulous regular chocolate chip cookies. I add chopped pecans, because I like things a little nutty. 🙂
