M&M Cookies


So, I am nine months pregnant… I needed these cookies yesterday. Needed. So good, quick and easy. You can do a variation of M&M/Chocolate chip ratio.

1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup M&M’s
1/2 cup chocolate chip

Cream together butter, pudding mix and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix dry ingredients, then add into butter mix. Fold in chocolate chip and M&M’s.

Drop by the tablespoonful onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes 24-30 cookies, depending on the size you like. Enjoy!


Sour Cream (or Yogurt) Chocolate Chip Muffins

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Muffins

My mom has been baking these muffins for as long as I can remember.  I request these every time we are going anywhere that requires me to be at my parent’s house in the morning. They are easy to make, light, fluffy and melt in your mouth delicious – but come with two rules: 1. They have to be eaten hot 2. You have to put butter on them… and this is coming from the girl who avoids butter and oil at all costs – it just makes the world of difference with these muffins.

Here is what you will need to make 12 muffins:

1 egg
1 cup sour cream (or plain yogurt)
¼ cup milk
1 ¾ c sifted flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Beat egg. Stir in sour cream and milk. In a separate bowl sift dry ingredients together. Blend into wet batter. Fold in chocolate chips. Pour into 12 greased or lined muffin tins and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Enjoy…but don’t forget the rules!
