Mint M & M Cookies

I love the candy creations that only come out at Christmas.  Mint is one of those and I try to stock up.  Too bad they're in Christmas colors but white and red work for Valentine's day and the green are a tip for the cook.  Today I made cookies and with a little experimenting with when to add on the is the recipe ~ 

Mint M & M Cookies 

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
6 oz Greek yogurt
2 large eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup white chips (I used Ghirardhelli)
Mint M & M's

Cream butter and sugars.  Beat in vanilla, eggs and Greek yogurt.  Mix in dry ingredients and then fold in white chips.

Scoop onto parchment lined baking sheets and bake at 325° for about 12 minutes (until lightly brown around edges).  Press mint M & M's into cookie.  If you try doing this earlier, the colors will bleed onto the cookies.

Makes 5 dozen cookies.
