You know when I saw these fabulous Raspberry M&M’s from Target that I was going to create another fun cookie right? Well, that I did! I thought it would be so fun to start with a raspberry butter that brings a perfectly hint of raspberry to each cookie with those delicious Raspberry M&Ms on top! Wait until you try these M&Ms, they are incredible right out of the bag, so try to leave some for the cookies 🙂
Hope you enjoy!!
Here’s your line up!
You’ll need just about 1/2 cup of red raspberries to puree.
There are a number of ways you can puree your raspberries. I chose to just place them in my blender with 1 tablespoon water and mix until well combined. I placed the blended berries over my fine strainer to drain the juice. Make sense?
You get this beautiful berry puree. Makes the cookies smell and taste fabulous!
Drizzle 3 tablespoons of your puree into your softened butter.
Raspberry butter in the works!
Ahhhhh, pink raspberry butter!
Add your sugars and mix, mix, mix!
Add 2 beautiful eggs to the mix.
A little splash of vanilla.
Time for the dry ingredients!
I took a moment to capture the flour on the beater. I’m a nerd.
Add your chips.
Oh how fabulous are these Raspberry M&M’s? They really are delicious.
Press the M&M’s into your cookies.
I love how nice and round the cookies turn out. They are perfect for packaging up too!
Serve with milk 🙂
