...tasted so good
Apparently every presidential election year since 1992, Family Circle magazine runs a cookie contest between the two potential First Ladies. This M&M cookie recipe was submitted by Ann Romney and although Michelle Obama won with her White & Dark Chocolate Chip cookies, only 287 votes separated the two women. It was the smallest margin since the contest's inception. But since I don't eat gluten, these get my vote. The only thing I substituted was Bob's Red Mill GF oats to make it truly GF for me.
So, as promised here
photos and the recipe for M&M cookies:
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups crunchy peanut butter
1 TBSP light corn syrup (such a Karo)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tsps baking soda
6 oz (1 cup) chocolate chips
2/3 cups M&M's candies
1. Heat oven to 325*. In a large mixing bowl, cream sugars, butter, peanut butter & corn syrup on high speed until well combined. Beat in eggs 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla extract.
2. In a separate large bowl, mix together oats & baking soda. Stir in peanut butter mixture until combined. Mix in chocolate chips and the M&M's.
3. Using large cookie scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets, flatten slightly. Bake at 325* for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
|This is the size cookie scoop I use. I got like 8 dozen cookies!|
Happy (gluten free) snapping!
