Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Peanut butter + chocolate. 
Is there really anything better?
Our neighbors had a cookout over the weekend and I needed something easy and delicious to bring. I knew these cookies would be a big hit, and they were. They were still warm and gooey from the oven when I took them over….and seriously, is there anything better than a cookie still warm from the oven???
This is just one of those recipes that you need to have on hand at all times. Everyone loves a good peanut butter cookie.
This the the perfect go-to cookie when you're in need of a sweet treat. They are soft and slightly chewy...and oh so GOOD.

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies
Recipe adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
Ingredients:
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup creamy all natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking soda
1 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 and 1/2 cups M&Ms

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together on medium speed. Mix in the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Slowly mix in the flour mixture, making sure you don't over mix. Gently fold in the M&Ms. Chill the dough for at least 30 minutes. 
Drop chilled dough by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes. The cookies will seem undercooked, but they will firm up as they cool.
