Jubilee M&M cookies

One last Jubilee bake for the bank holiday weekend - I found some limited edition red, white and blue M&Ms in the supermarket and couldn't resist buying them. I'd seen M&M cookies before so went online to find a suitable recipe and threw them together in a matter of minutes!

I found the recipe I wanted to use on Joy of Baking, and halved the recipe but otherwise followed it quite closely. Essentially  you cream the butter and sugar:

Add the egg, then the flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla.

Here are the limited edition M&Ms:

Shape the mixture into balls and flatten slightly on a baking sheet. Push some M&Ms into the top. Here they are after a few minutes in the oven. I realised when the cookies spread that there was space for more M&Ms so I added some more.

Fresh from the oven -a quick and simple recipe but a nice addition to the jubilee table.

Here's a quick snapshot of my mum's birthday tea


  1. Aww the M&M's are so cute. Wish your mom a belated Happy Bday from me! The spread looks delicious.

  2. What a feast! I love your recipe with the M&Ms and the butter is a great find!

  3. What a great spread! those cookies look not only delicious but very festive!
