M&M Cookies

M&M Cookies

These M&M Cookies are so good. We made these tasty treats for an equine event that we were supposed to cater where we called the Cowgirl Cookies, but sadly it got rained out. So we had to suffer through keeping them.  Weep for us…really. 🙂  These have been in the family as long as I can remember. They were one of grandma’s go-to cookies every Christmas for gifts when she was doing her baking. She would make mincemeat cookies for my sister, chocolate chip cookies, some cut out cookies and, M&M Cookies were always a favorite and because of that we just had to share them with you.  She always called the M&M Cookies Color Cookies because of the rainbow of color in them. They looked like stained glass windows to me as a child. We just called them delicious.  She would make tins or boxes for every family member, friend, and neighbor.  Boy, were they excited to get her gifts. She would also make peanut brittle candy and put it in every container. So full of love!
 

Can You Use Regular M&M’s For Baking M&M Cookies?

Yes! You can.
 

How Do M&M’s Not Melt When You Bake Them?

The candy coating helps to hold them together.
 

How Long Will M&M Cookies Last?

I would say about 4-5 days.
