M&M Cookie Bars
Oh are these good! When I saw these over at Shelby's food blog The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch I knew that I HAD to make them. Unfortunately I have been snacking on them ever since I cut them up this afternoon and that is not always a good thing. My hips and thighs are agreeing with me! These are really simple and tasty and soooo good. Sometimes simple is just the best!
2 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup butter, melted
2 1/4 cups brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups M&M's
Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan with non stick pray.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt.
In another large bowl, combine melted butter and brown sugar stirring until evenly distributed. Allow to cool, slightly. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each one. Add vanilla. Stir in flour mixture. When combined, add M&M's. Spread batter into pan.
Bake 24 - 26 minutes until shiny and golden brown on top. Try not to overbake or this will be dry. A cake tester will mostly likely not come out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting.
