Perfectly soft, perfectly chewy and packed with M&Ms!
These have got to be the BEST cookie recipe ever. I, in fact, say it may surpass my mom's molasses cookie recipe. Sshh! Don't tell her I said that :) It's my go-to for any M&M cookie craving. They keep amazingly which can be any issue with some "soft" cookies.
