- ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened (1½ sticks)
- ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch salt, optional and to taste
- ¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- ¾ cup milk chocolate M&M’s mixed into the dough + about ½ cup for placing on top of dough mounds
Directions: Combine the butter, sugars, egg, vanilla, and beat until creamed and well-combined, about 4 minutes. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, optional salt, and beat until just combined, about 1 minute. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the chocolate chips,¾ cup M&Ms, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, line a baking sheet with a Silpat or spray with cooking spray. Place dough mounds on baking sheet, spaced at least 2 inches apart and bake for 11 minutes, or until edges have set and tops are just set, even if slightly undercooked, pale, and glossy in the center. Cookies firm up as they cool. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving.
