These may very well be my favorite cookies ever. I’ve only ever gotten M&M cookies from the cookie aisle and while those are great, they aren’t soft. And I love a soft cookie!
Tracey shared this recipe a couple weeks back and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about them. I finally remembered to buy some M&Ms (at Lowe’s of all places) this past weekend and made them as soon as I walked through the door. And I’m not even going to try to lie about it – they didn’t survive the weekend.
A nasty wildfire broke out in this city that I have come to love and I have been absolutely glued to the TV. I lived the first 26 years of my life on the Gulf Coast so I’ve never seen anything like this! It’s amazing in a completely horrific way.
But back to the cookies – I haven’t cooked, baked, anything else all weekend because I can’t walk away from the TV. These cookies are literally the only thing I ate. And I’m not complaining because they are so good! They’re a little different from your typical sugar cookie in that they include cream cheese, which I guess is what keeps them so soft? It also adds a little bit of a tang that is fantastic with the super sweet M&Ms.
As of writing this, Colorado has 10 wildfires burning. If you are able to help at all check out HelpColoradoNow.org. If you are local to the Springs, Springs Bargains has been keeping a post updated about donation locations and volunteering.
