Peanut Butter and M&m Cookies

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt ( I used 2 tsp. of sea salt )
1 cup of peanut butter ( I used Peanut Butter & Co's Bee's Knees )
2 eggs beaten
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract ( I used almond )
1 cup of M&M's ( I used an entire large bag of the dark )

Preparation

1
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
2
In a large bowl, cream the butter and shortening together.
3
Add the peanut butter and beat until smooth.
4
Add both sugars and continue to beat until everything is well incorporated.
5
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
6
Add the vanilla extract and beat to blend. Using a large wooden spoon or your hands, add the flour a little bit at a time until there are no white streaks.
7
Stir in the M&M's until they are evenly dispersed through out the batter.
8
Cover and refrigerate for an hour.
9
Preheat the oven to 350F. And line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop out rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough and place each cookie about 2 inches apart.

If you want, you can make a criss cross pattern with a lightly floured fork.

Bake for about 8-10 minutes.

If you prefer crispy cookies, increase the time to 11-12 minutes.

Allow the sheets to cool for 5 minutes before removing the cookies.
