To make M&M sugar cookies, here's what you'll need to do!
Measure Dry Ingredients:
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and fine sea salt in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter, cream cheese, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together on medium high speed until fluffy and light in color.
Mix in Dry Ingredients:
Add in egg and vanilla bean paste. With the mixer running on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients just until the flour has combined.
Add in M&Ms:
The dough will be sticky. Remove bowl from the stand mixer, and stir in 1 cup of M&M's with a silicone spatula.
Scoop cookies into 3 tablespoon balls and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Using the remaining ½ cup of M&M's, cover the outside of each cookie dough scoop.
Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes until the dough has firmed up. Heat oven to 350°F (175°C).
Remove cookies from the refrigerator and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 16-20 minutes.
Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an air-tight container at room temperature up to 5 days.
