World’s Best Cookies

July 17, 2014
I am so happy to have another guest poster on the blog today.  Karen from Ramblings of An Otter Wifey is here sharing a good ol’ standby cookie recipe!  

I’ll let her take it away!

Hi Everyone!! I’m Karen from Ramblings of An Otter Wifey and today I’m going to share with you the World’s Best Cookie Recipe (also known as Red’s Ultimate M&M Cookies from the back of the mini M&M’s package).
I love cookies.  And I love baking cookies.  However, I am a bit particular about the way my cookies taste, I don’t like crunchy cookies.  I enjoy the soft ones, you know …the ones that almost melt in your mouth.  After many recipes, and years of experimenting, I thought, I may as well give this recipe a try.  It has been my go-to cookie recipe for the past 5 years now.
Everyone in my family LOVES them.  Especially my three year old.

As you can see my recipe book is well loved.  I’ve had it for a long time.


  • 1 cup of butter (softened – DO NOT MELT IT, I’ve mad that mistake, and they just don’t taste as good).
  • 1/2 cup of golden brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of M&M’s (this can change … it’s all about how mach YOU want).


  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter.
  2. Add white and brown sugar, beat until fluffy.  Add in egg and vanilla (not shown in pictures).
  3. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl
  4. Using a mixer … mix all the ingredients
  5. Blend into the creamed mixture.
  6. Add in M&M’s.
  7. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. 
  8. Bake for 10-13 minutes or until edges begin to darken.

Your final step – make sure you do all the dishes so you can relax with your cookies!


These are a super easy cookie recipe if you need something to bake when you don’t have much time.  The great thing about M&M’s, you can usually find Holiday themed colours on a regular basis – red and pink at Valentine’s Day, red and green at Christmas, oranges and brown in the fall.


This recipe made 36 cookies for me today, sometimes it makes more, sometimes a few less, it all depends on how generous my scoops.
Hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!!!
Katie here again!  Thanks to Karen for sharing her go-to cookie recipe today!  When you get a chance, I’m sure she’d LOVE it if you stopped over to her blog to say hi.
Thanks for stopping by today!
