Ingredients in Oreo and M&M Cookies
- Butter - use unsalted, room temperature butter.
- Sugar - regular white granulated sugar.
- Brown Sugar - we like to use light brown sugar for this recipe.
- Eggs - any kind of large eggs will work. It’s best if they are at room temperature so that they don’t “shock” the butter when you add them.
- Vanilla Extract - pure vanilla extract tastes best.
- Salt - we like to use sea salt.
- Baking Powder and Baking Soda - the combination of these two ingredients helps the cookies to rise and stay nice and soft.
- Flour - we use all-purpose flour for this recipe.
- Chocolate Chips - we love to use Guittard brand dark or semi sweet chocolate chips.
- M&Ms - use any variety of M&Ms that you like! There are tons of different flavors and colors to choose from.
- Oreos - you can either crush your own or buy them crushed.
How to Make Oreo and M&M Cookies
- Make the dough. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar and brown sugar using the paddle attachment for about 3-5 minutes, or until light and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs, vanilla extract and salt and mix on low to combine. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the baking powder, baking soda and flour. Mix until combined, then add the flour mixture to the butter and sugar mixture. Mix on low speed until combined, scraping the bottom and the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add and gently mix the M&Ms, crushed Oreos and chocolate chips until just combined. Do not overmix!
- Scoop the cookies. Using a small ice cream scoop, or a spoon, scoop 2" balls and place onto an ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet.
- Bake. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 9-11 minutes, or until lightly golden brown and set around the edges.
- Cool. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
- Oreo Stuffed Cookies - make the dough but leave out the Oreo pieces. Instead, portion the dough as directed, but split each ball of dough into two with one piece about 75% and one about 25%. Flatten them both so that they are the same width (slightly wider than an Oreo cookie), then sandwich a full Oreo cookie in between, with the larger piece of dough on top. Bake as directed.
- Oreo and M&M Cookie Bars - make the dough as directed, then press gently into a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for about 18-20 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown.
- Oreo and M&M Peanut Butter Cookies - add Oreos and M&Ms to our favorite Peanut Butter Cookies recipe.
- Different flavors of Oreos and M&Ms. Both brands make a wide variety of different flavors and colors to choose from so you can have fun mixing and matching!
Storing and Freezing Instructions
- Baked cookies: Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature, or up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
- Freezing cookie dough: The easiest way is to make and scoop the dough as directed, then place onto a baking tray and freeze for at least 30 minutes. Once rock hard, transfer to freezer bags and store for up to 3 months. To bake, just pull the cookies out onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and preheat your oven for at least 30 minutes. Bake as directed, adding an extra minute or two to the total time.
- Freezing baked cookies: You can also freeze baked cookies for up to 3 months, if you happen to have a lot left over. You should freeze them in an airtight container separated by layers of parchment paper and thaw either in the fridge or at room temperature.
