Confetti Cookies

Who doesnt love confetti!?  I love confetti cake so I figured I would love confetti cookies, and after making these I know I love confetti cookies!  These look awesome and they taste awesome also.  It just a basic sugar cookies base with the added M&M's for color and chocolate flavor.  These are fun for all ages and are a delicious treat!!

Confetti Cookies - Adapted from Munchkin Munchies
Yield: 3 Dozen 
2 1⁄2 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1⁄2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup (2 sticks) Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
1 Cup Crushed up M&M's Candies - about 2 regular size bags of M&M's

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
  3. Combine the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Stir in 1 cup of the m&m confetti bits and mix well.
  5. Use a medium cookie scoop and place cookie scoops on parchment-lined baking sheet (I used my airbake, so no need for parchment) about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake for about 10 minutes or just until the edges begin to brown.
  7. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. Enjoy!!
