  • Summary

    These rainbow M&M cookies are soft-baked style with extra chewy edges. I recommend mini M&Ms so you can pack more into each cookie. Chilling the cookie dough for 2 hours is an imperative step, so make sure you set aside enough time.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups + 2 Tablespoons (265g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
    • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks or 170g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
    • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light or dark brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
    • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
    • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
    • 1 cup mini M&Ms (plus 2 Tablespoons for topping, optional)
