These Small Batch M&M Cookies are soft, chewy, and jam packed with sweet, colorful M&Ms. In just 25 minutes you can have 6 large, and dangerously good, cookies. There is no need to chill the dough, just melt the butter, mix everything together, bake and enjoy!
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the butter for 20 second intervals, stirring between each interval, until the butter is fully melted. (no more than 80 seconds) Let cool for 5 minutes
While the butter is cooling, preheat the oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
After the 5 minutes, add the melted butter to a medium sized mixing bowl and stir in the brown sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla extract.
To the wet ingredients add the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold until just combined and no traces of flour remain
Pour the M&Ms into the cookie dough, then fold them in with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.
Divide the cookie dough into 6 equal portions, use your hands to roll them into balls, and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to look golden brown. Then carefully remove the small batch M&M cookies from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
