Brown Butter White Chocolate M&M Cookies
Serves: 18
  • ½ C butter, softened
  • ⅔ C brown sugar
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ C all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ C white chocolate M&M's
  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until butter turns light brown. Remove from heat immediately. Pour butter into a heat-safe container and allow to cool. (If you want to speed up the cooling process, stick the bowl in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.)
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together cooled butter and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla extract and beat until well-combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat until just combined. Stir in M&M's.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. While dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with a baking mat or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Scoop dough out onto cookie sheet by heaping tablespoonful. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cookies just start to turn light golden brown.
  7. Remove cookies to a wire rack to cool.
  8. Store leftovers in an airtight container.
