M&M Cookies

I told you i was in trouble hehe Last night when i should of been finishing some pieces i decided to bake these babies instead.... from scratch. Armed with a recipe from Milk and Honey Cafe i was surprised how quick and easy it was to make the cookies. Unfortunately Hubby had already gone to bed however it was the first thing he ate for breakfast haha

I figure i would ease myself into the baking from mastering the perfect cookie to creating scrumptious cupcakes. Baby steps!

Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets.
