This recipe comes by way of the blog Picky Palate that I've been following for a while now. I always want to try so many of her recipes and I just never seem to make time. But this one stuck out so I decided to try it.
Cinnamon M&M Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 2 sticks softened unsalted butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 10 ounce bag chocolate chips
- 1 9.90 ounce bag Cinnamon M&M's
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (or a silpat liner).
- In a stand or electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla mixing until well combined.
- Place flour, baking soda, and salt into a large bowl, mix to combine then add slowly to mixing bowl, mixing on low speed. Add cinnamon, rolled oats and chocolate chips. Mix until just combined. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto prepared baking sheet, about 1 inch apart. Press cookie down about 1/2 inch to flaten slightly. Press 5 Cinnamon M&M's onto each cookie. Bake for 9-12 minutes, until baked to your liking. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes on baking sheet before removing to cooling rack. Makes 3 dozen cookies
- Once again, I over-baked them. The first batch, anyway. If I make them again I'd probably go with 9 minutes in the oven and go from there.
- If you can't find Cinnamon M&M's you could use regular ones. I couldn't tell a big cinnamon flavor from the M&Ms and I might even skip them altogether if I decide to make these cookies again.
- One 9.90 ounce bag of Cinnamon M&M's wasn't enough and I ran out. It was fine, though, because the cookies were fine without them.
- Everyone at work who tried the cookies said they were good but Husband says they weren't the best recipe I've tried. He's not a big cinnamon fan anyway but I love cinnamon and I agree with him they weren't spectacular. But they were good.
