My son loves brightly colored foods. So, he’s been dying to make something with all of the Fourth of July-themed goodies we’ve seen at the store. We decided to make some soft M&M chocolate chip cookies because he loves M&M cookies (what kid doesn’t?!).
This is a really soft dough, and it makes a soft cookie. The chilling time is necessary for the dough to hold its shape, and I think the cookies taste a little better after the dough has chilled for about a day. It gives the dough a chance for the flavors to blend together, so you get more of the butter, sugar, and vanilla flavors (and less of the flour taste).
