This button didn't work last week either... but it's for a blog called 33 Shades of Green that has a recipe link up.
When I got to camp my friend told me we had an abundance of M&Ms on hand. I thought that would be an easy enough problem to solve.
The next morning as I was checking out a few different blogs, I came across this recipe for Chewy M&M Sugar Cookies. Click on that link to get the recipe.
They looked delicious and I decided to make the cookies. They had cream cheese in them... yum. I thought of just making a huge batch of them (so I could use up the whole block of cream cheese right away), because how bad could something with cream cheese, sugar, and chocolate turn out? But just to be safe I decided to just make one recipe to try them.
I actually followed the recipe, too!
|Cream cheese cut into pieces sitting in the sugar...|
|Mixing it together with the melted butter...|
|Started mixing in the M&Ms before the dough was completely mixed together...|
I didn't have unsalted butter, so I used regular butter and added a titch less salt.
I didn't see the part about having my egg at room temperature... oops.
I used half of the amount of vanilla and added almond extract for the rest.
I put the M&Ms on top once the cookies came out of the oven as the blogger suggested to keep the candies from cracking. The cookies turned out bigger than I thought they would be! And I got about 27 of them from one recipe instead of 24... maybe I taste-tested less than the other people who made these cookies.. no, I probably didn't.
|They had fun!|
I thought they could each do 1 1/2 recipes. I am not a complete idiot (well, by my standards) but remembering to increase each ingredient for each girl by an additional 50% was tricky...
But we did it... the whole time listening to The Biebs and Call Me Maybe... oh, and One Direction...
|So not angsty... maybe The Biebs has magical powers...|
