Chewy M and M Cookies (with a surprise ingredient)

I caught your attention when I said "SURPRISE" didn't I? I sure hope I did!  Surprises are one of my most FAVORITE things in life to give and to receive. :-) Hopefully, many of you will be surprised with this ingredient in these cookies as I have never seen such an ingredient in cookies before.  The surprise ingredient is BREAD FLOUR.  What do you think?  Was that a surprise?  Well, whether it was or not you have got to try this recipe....especially if you like cookies that are chewy on the inside and crisp on the outside along with a perfect not overly sweet taste.  You will not be disappointed with this cookie recipe. 

As you can see in the above picture I choose to use Spring M and M's to gently stir into my cookie batter.  Of course good old fashioned chocolate chips can be easily substituted for the M and M's. 

Chewy M and M Cookies
(recipe comes from Delightfully Dowling....a blog full of drool worthy recipes)


1 cup unsalted butter, melted

2 1/4 cup bread flour (Hello, surprise ingredient)

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 sugar

1 1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg + 1 egg yolk

2 Tbs milk

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 cups M and M's (or chocolate chips)


1. In a large bowl sift together flour, salt and baking soda.  Set flour mixture aside.

2. Cream together melted butter, white and brown sugar on medium speed for a couple minutes.  Then add whole egg and egg yolk along with milk and vanilla extract.  Mix all together until well combined.

3. Chill dough for at least an hour.  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat liner.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Scoop cookie dough into nice balls with a medium size ice cream scoop onto cookie sheets and then place in oven (I like to bake my cookies one cookie shee at a time) and bake for 11-12 minutes.

4. Cool cookies and store in an airtight container.


Mr. Chicky sure did!!! ;-)

  11. tory burchは皆様の期待を応じて、いよいよ日本に入りました。銀座にそのブランド品を販売する店をオープンしました。フラグシップ店があり、そのほか首都圏の百貨店では、三越?松屋?伊勢丹?高島屋?西武?そごうにも入っています。実店舗が広いですけど、それより、オンラインショップがもっと広いです。日本人にとってはわざわざアメリカへトリーバーチ フラットを購入する必要はありません.
