Peanut Butter M & M Cookies

I am such a chocolate and peanut butter junkie and these cookies hit the spot when I was looking for a yummy treat (I must admit- I probably ate tons more dough than I did actual cookies! We are actually big cookie dough fans in our family. When we were growing up, my mom would save my dad a blob of cookie dough when she made cookies so that he could have a little bite of dough when he got home from work. Is that true love or what?!)!
Peanut Butter M & M Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups peanut butter (creamy or chunky)
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 medium-sized bag of M & M’s (I used plain, but peanut butter would be awesome!)
Mix butter, sugar and peanut butter together.  Add eggs, flour, baking soda and vanilla extract. Fold in bag of M & M’s. Roll dough into 1 inch (or a little larger) balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350°F for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes 3-4 dozen cookies (depending on how large you roll your cookies).

      So at my grocery store, the M & M bags have “Medium”, “Large” and “X-Large” printed on the bags. I am so sorry that I didn’t check out the ounces of the bag. It is about the same size as a bag of chocolate chips (or about 2 cups).
