Soft and Chewy Peanut M&M Cookies

Soft and Chewy Peanut M&M Cookies

These are soft peanut butter cookies, full of peanut butter flavor and stuffed with peanut M&Ms.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt and set it aside.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Add in the peanut butter, egg and vanilla. Mix together until well combined.

Tip in the dry ingredients and use a rubber spatula to fold them together until nearly all are combined. There should be a few streaks of flour remaining.

Add in the peanut M&Ms (reserving a quarter of them for topping the cookies), and fold until it's all combined into a soft dough.

Cover the bowl and chill it in the refrigerator for around 30 minutes (or more for thicker cookies.)

Roll into balls and bake the cookies for around 8-10 minutes until just golden brown around the edges, but they should still be quite soft.

The cookie base has a lovely soft texture, and it's a great pairing with the crunchy peanut M&ms.
