I live with an actual Cookie Monster. She’ll be five in a few months. She’s a pretty good sous chef. She demanded we make some cookies today. So, in her honor, I have named these after her. We never bake an entire batch at one time. I portion them and freeze them in a zip-lock bag with the baking instructions on it. That way, we can have fresh baked cookies in a flash!
Chocolate Monster Cookies:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup organic cane sugar
3/4 cup, plus 2 T light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp Fleur de Sel
1 3/4 cups King Arthur AP Flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup mini M&M’s
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix well until combined. Add the salt, flour, baking soda and mix until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and M&M’s by hand (use more or less chocolate as desired).
Bake rounded spoonfuls on a parchment lined sheet pan at 360F for 10-12 minutes.
