Chewy M&M Cookies ~ July 4th Recipes ~ Kids Corner

My son insisted me to make M&M cookies from long time, Hence I have experimented these M&M cookies for this July 4th recently. I have adapted this recipe from Pinch of Yum but I have used my creative idea to arrange the Red & Blue M&Ms as american flag to suit the July 4th Event. There is no Butter used in this recipe and also most of the Sugar used is Brown Sugar,  can be considered as little healthy variation for Kids. This is the first time I have made cookies with M&M's, the end result is Delicious, the cookies are little chewy and soft, not too sweet, but in every bite you will get one M&M that makes it special for your taste buds. These cookies made my son very happy and excited, he took in charge of serving these cookies to his little friends on July 4th gathering at my home and i remained one satisfied Mommy. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

American Flag with M&M for July 4th!
Brown Sugar - 1 cup
White Sugar - 1/2 cup
Shortening or Vegetable Oil - 1 cup
Eggs - 2
Vanilla Extract - 1 tsp
All Purpose Flour - 2 1/2
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
M&Ms - 1 1/2

*yields 2 Dozen medium size cookies

  1. Preheat the Oven to 350 F. Spread the PAM oil on the Cookie Sheet. Take a medium bowl and mix All Purpose Flour, Baking Soda and Salt, keep it aside for the flour mix to aerate.
  2. Take another wide bowl  add Brown Sugar, White Sugar, Shortening, Eggs and Vanilla Extract. Mix it well with mixer ( i have used cake mixer) on low speed. 
  3. Now add dry flour mix to the wet ingredients and mix until combined and forms like dough. ( you can mix with hand). Now fold 1 cup M&Ms into the dough.  ( reserve 1/2 cup to top the cookies)
  4. Roll the dough into balls in your palms and keep them on the cookie sheet, flatten them slightly. Arrange some more M&Ms on top. 
  5. Bake the cookies for 8 -10 min. At this time cookies will be little flaky but don't worry they will be firm once they cool-off. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and let them cool-off for 5 min.  ( my kids finished half of the cookies when they are getting cooled, that's how much irresistant are these :-))

  • I have made these cookies for July 4th. So when i reserve the M&M i have saved Blue and Red M&Ms, to top the Cookies with American Flag Design.
  • The cookies are very chewy and not too sweet as we used Brown Sugar. 
  • My kids totally enjoyed these cookies and I am sure this recipe will be July4th favorite for coming years in my kitchen.

Take a Close Look, Very Soft and Chewy!
