I had set out to replicate (or almost replicate) an M&M ice cream sandwich which I remember them selling in stores. I loved them, so I wanted to remake them from home, at least the cookie part. I messed around with my chocolate chip cookie recipe a little and voila, these were born! It’s important to use mini M&Ms for these, they give you way more M&Ms and look more like the original ice cream sandwich. :-) The cookie is super chewy but still soft. Perfect.
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 large egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350F and grease two cookie pans.
Cream the melted butter and both sugars until the mixture is well combined and smooth.
Add the egg and egg yolk, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla.
In separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder, and cornstarch. Add half of the flour mixture to the wet mix. Mix well, then add the rest of the flour mix.
Pour in the mini M&Ms and mix until combined.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
Cool for 5 minutes on the tray then move to a wire rack.
Can you tell it was hot when that picture was taken?
