Candy Cookies

When the most recent issue of Food Network Magazine arrived and I spotted these cookies, I knew they had to go at the top of my To Bake list.  I'm pretty much obsessed with chocolate chip cookies, and these have all kinds of other goodies added in.

Whisk flour and baking soda
Cream butter and sugars
Add vanilla, salt, egg, and egg yolk
Mix in remaining ingredients in order specified...
...and you will get something that looks like this
Roll into balls, place on baking sheet, and flatten slightly
Bake and enjoy!

Adam Gertler's Kid's Candy Cookies

Active time: 25 minutes
Total: 40 minutes
Makes: about 25 cookies
2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
1 cup Pretzel M&Ms
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
½ cup toffee pieces
¾ cup peanut butter chips

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a bowl.
  2. In a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to cream the butter and sugars.
  3. Add salt, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk and beat until combined.  Add M&Ms and beat for a couple seconds.  With mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture.  When just combined, mix in remaining ingredients.
  4. Form heaping tablespoons of dough into balls and place about 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.  Flatten slightly with your hand.
  5. Bake until golden brown on edges, 11 to 13 minutes.  Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet, then cool completely on a wire rack.
