M&M Cookies

M&M Cookies pinit

Hello everyone, welcome to my latest baking recipe for these fun M&M Cookies. These cookies are perfect to bake if you are after a quick recipe that you can prepare in advance. This specific recipe doesn’t need any resting or chilling time. You can also swap the M&Ms for your favourite confectionary – I posted a previous recipe where I made Kit Kat Cookies.

The warm weather, in Scotland, is supposed to continue into the weekend. I’m hoping to get the family together for a BBQ in the back garden. If I make any interesting recipes for that I’ll make sure to take a photograph and upload to the site.
