I'm doing a little Easter baking in advance, but I know I'm going to have to hide these carefully if I expect them to survive until next weekend. Luckily these cookies always bake up perfectly, and they freeze like a dream.
And just because it needs to be said, I hope that you will try "weighing" your flour with this recipe, rather than just sifting and spooning. It really does make a difference when you want consistently PERFECT cookies! And though you may be tempted to add "just a little bit extra" in terms of chocolate chips or these pretty pastel M&Ms, you don't want to overload the dough so much that it has a hard time baking or holding everything together. If you want these to look extra special, try placing a few M&Ms or chocolate chips gently on top when you remove these from the oven. They'll melt down into the top as they cool, giving you the prettiest cookies ever!
