  • 1/2 Cup Butter (softened)
  • 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Teaspoons Cornstarch
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 Cup Plain M&M's (we used Harvest Blend)


  • First, remove the butter from your fridge and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Next, spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray or prep a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  • Then, use a hand mixer or stand mixer to cream together the sugars and butter on medium speed until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes).
  • Afterward, add the egg and vanilla and mix on low speed until combined.
  • Now, add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine.
  • Once that is done, stir in the chocolate chips and M&M's by hand.
  • With the dough prepped, shape the dough into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter or use a scoop. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to baking.
  • Last, after the dough chills, place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove the cookies from the oven when the cookies are lightly brown but still look soft in the middle. Add additional M&M's to the top of the warm cookies if desired. Allow the cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container for 3 to 4 days.
