Everyone’s favorite cookie's recipe you can easily make yourself


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ tsp cornstarch

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • ½ tsp salt

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter melted

  • ¾ cup golden brown sugar

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar

  • vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg + 1 egg yolk

  • 1 heaping cup milk

  • chocolate M&M's


  • Sift the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Then set aside.
  • Melt the unsalted butter in a saucepan or microwave and pour into a bowl.
  • Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar to the butter along with the vanilla extract. Mix using an electric hand mixer. Make sure to beat it well.
  • Add the room temperature egg and egg yolk and beat them in.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and gently mix on low speed. Then gradually pick up the speed and mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated. Lastly, mix in the M&M's.
  • Scoop out and roll the cookie dough. Place even-sized cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about five centimetres apart.
  • Cover and chill your dough for about two hours. If you want flatter cookies, don’t chill the dough.
  • Bake at 175 °C for about 12 minutes. The centres will look a little under-baked, but don’t worry; they will continue to bake even after you take them out of the oven.
  • Let them sit on the baking sheet for about five minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.


  • add a few extra M&M’s for a more colourful cookie
