I’ve been seeing a lot of interesting recipes on Pinterest lately, and while some have been quite underwhelming, this M & M Cookie Pie is a huge winner. M & Ms and a cake-like texture, what’s not to like? Much lighter, more chewy (and perhaps) more delicious than M & M cookies, this dessert is perfect for entertaining. I’ve made this twice now and it’s very easy to ruin the dough by adding even slightly more flour than is written in the recipe. So do check My Baking Addiction’s tutorial on How to Measure Flour if you’re even slightly doubtful about how to measure flour correctly!
Recipe from Susan’s Adventures in My Kitchen
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup M & Ms
- Preheat oven to 325 F
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Add in egg and extract and blend.
- The combine flour and baking soda- mix until completely incorporated.
- Fold in the M&M’s. Dump into a greased 9.5 inch pie pan and bake for 25-30 mins.
- When a toothpick or a knife comes out clean, it’s done! Let cool for half an hour or so, and then cut into the pie slices and serve.
