mm cookies

this recipe is from the hershey’s 1934 cookbook and was given to me by my cousin alisha. it was given to her by my great grandmother edna, whom we called minnie. i was lucky enough to be able to know her and actually spent a lot of time with her so this seemed extra special to me. 

the recipe is actually a base for any type of candy you would like to add to a cookie. i chose mm’s. as you can see from the pick the store was all out of the festive green and red so i opted for the regular colors. i think i nailed this recipe its pretty yummy. instead of sour milk though I used regular whole milk and i only used about a cup and a half of mm’s.

¾ cup of sugar
½ cup light brown sugar packed
2/3 cup of butter softened
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup sour milk or regular whole milk
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
2 cups of semi sweet chocolate chips or other candy or nuts

1. pre-heat oven to 375 F cream the sugars and butter until light and fluffy. then add egg and vanilla; beat well. lastly add the milk and beat into mixture. 

2. in separate bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. whisk together to combine all dry ingredients.

3. slowly add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix.

4. lastly fold in candy and nuts of your choice and also the desired amount you want.

5. drop by spoonfuls on cookie pan/sheet and bake 8-11 minutes
