Lena Goldfinch - Christmas M&M Oatmeal Cookies

by Author Lena Goldfinch

Bring out the red and green M&Ms! Add some wholesome oatmeal for a hearty, yummy cookie. My son loves these rich buttery chewy cookies hot from the over. My husband loves them even more.

1 cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup Holiday M&Ms


Preheat oven to 375⁰ F.

Cream together butter and both sugars. Blend in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix gradually into dough until well-blended. Stir in M&Ms. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet (I find a darker non-stick cookie sheet works best). Bake for 7-8 minutes at 375⁰ F, until golden, but still moist and ever-so-slightly gooey. Remove from oven, let stand for about a minute, then remove immediately to cool. Makes about 3 dozen.
