We took everyone’s favorite basic M&M’s™ cookie and added vanilla pudding for an easy, scratch cookie with tons of flavor — then dolled them up for Christmas with green and red M&M’s™ and white chocolate chips.
2 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 box (4-serving size) Jell-O™ vanilla instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups green and red M&M’s™ milk chocolate candies
1 cup white vanilla baking chips
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
2. In large bowl, beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until fluffy; scrape side of bowl. Beat in dry pudding mix. Beat in eggs, one at a time, just until smooth. Beat in vanilla. On low speed, gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture until well blended. Stir in chocolate candies and white chips until blended.
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
4. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
