I bought some mint M&Ms, because it’s *Christmas*, and you need bad chocolate at Christmas. Also mint. But they’re not that great for just eating, so I decided to make cookies from them. I found this recipe
, which looked *perfect*. Also, you can’t go that wrong with any recipe that contains an ENTIRE POUND of butter.
I experimented a bit with rolling them out. Some I just scooped as rough tablespoons, and some I rolled out into a ball:
The rough ones actually came out tasting, and looking, rather better:
The M&Ms are better shown off in the rough cookies, and the extra surface area helped the cookie crisp a bit more, which is a good thing here, since these are otherwise quite soft. Apparently the secret to “soft bake” cookies is Yet More Butter.
