  • Q: Can I freeze the cookie dough?
  • A: Yes, you can freeze the cookie dough. Just make sure to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in an airtight container. When you're ready to bake the cookies, let the dough thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours before baking.
  • Q: Can I use regular-sized M&M's instead of mini M&M's?
  • A: Yes, you can use regular-sized M&M's, but the cookies may not turn out as well. The mini M&M's distribute more evenly throughout the dough, which helps to create a better texture and taste.
  • Q: How long do these cookies last?
  • A: These cookies will last for up to one week if stored in an airtight container at room temperature. You can also freeze the cookies for up to three months.
  • Q: Can I use margarine instead of butter?
  • A: No, margarine is not recommended for this recipe. Butter gives the cookies a richer, more flavorful taste and texture.
  • Q: Can I add nuts to this recipe?
  • A: Yes, you can add chopped nuts to the cookie dough if you like. Pecans or walnuts would be a great addition.
  • Q: Can I make these cookies gluten-free?
  • A: Yes, you can use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend instead of regular flour to make these cookies gluten-free.


If you want to make these cookies even more festive, you can use different colored M&M's depending on the occasion. For example, you can use red and green M&M's for Christmas, pastel M&M's for Easter, or red, white, and blue M&M's for 4th of July.

When measuring out the flour, spoon it into the measuring cup and level it off with a knife. Don't scoop the flour out of the container with the measuring cup, or you'll end up with too much flour in your dough.

If you want to make sure your cookies are perfectly round, use a cookie scoop to form the dough balls. This will also help to ensure that all of the cookies are the same size, which means they'll bake evenly.
