The Perfect M&M Cookies! Thick, soft, and chewy! #cookies #dessert #sugarcookies #M&MS

I shared these M&M cookies with you last year, and they are crazy good – but that recipe yields a flatter cookie. It all depends what you are in the mood for. I have a thing for thick, chewy cookies. They are the best! So I knew I had to create an m&m cookie that was soft, thick , and perfectly chewy. These are by far one of my family’s new favorites!

    You know I’ve yet to try the cream cheese in the cookie? Does it make a big difference? Also can they stay at room temp? From the looks of these I don’t think they’d last that long anyway!
