Patriotic Chocolate Chip Cookies

4th of July is one of my favorite days of the year.
Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of my favorite treats to make!
I saw Red, White and Blue M&M's at Target, so I knew I had to buy some.
I put some out in a bowl for decoration (and to eat!) and I knew I wanted to use some of the m&m's to make cookies.
Patriotic Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here is what you need:
  1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup brown sugar
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
1 T vanilla
¾ t baking soda
1 t salt
3 cups flour
1 package  Chocolate Chips
1 cup of Red, White and Blue M&M's

Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. 
Stir until combined.
Add dry ingredients & Mix in chocolate chips and M&M's.
I found the 4th of July M&M's at Target, but if you can't find them there or if they are sold out, you can get them HERE. If you have Prime, they will arrive by Sunday :)
M&M's make everything better :)
After you have mixed all the ingredients,  use a cookie scoop to form the cookies.
THIS is the cookie scoop I have
Drop onto a cookie sheet....It makes the prettiest cookie dough :)
 Bake at 350 for 11-12 minutes.
These cookies are so soft & delicious.
Let cookies cool slightly...
This recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.
You need these cookies for your 4th of July party!
If you are a cookie snob like me, you will love these cookies!
You cold also make these into Ice Cream Cookie sandwiches....add some vanilla ice cream in between 2 cookies and then roll them in 4th of July Sprinkles and you have a Patriotic Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich!
I hope you have a great weekend and have fun celebrating the 4th of July!
