Soft Batch Christmas M & M Cookies

Soft Batch Christmas M & M Cookies

I LOVE soft chewy home made cookies.  Make them chocolate chip and throw in the promise that they’ll also be fluffy and you bet I’m going to try them.  Well, after seeing this recipe for what seems like a million times on Pinterest, I decided it was beyond time to give these cookies a try!

Hhhmmm, how about making these with a holiday twist?  Easy Peasy!  Let’s turn them into soft, chewy, fluffy M & M cookies. These are SUPER yummy and perfect to make any time of the year.

Recipe Notes:

Cornstarch is the secret ingredient in these cookies that makes them soft and fluffy. Who knew that good ol’ corn starch could become such a magical little ingredient!  Make sure that your baking soda and cornstarch are fresh so the cookies will be soft and fluffy.  I live on the coast and find that I need to replace them more often than I did when I lived inland.  The added moisture in the air must do something to them.
