  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 2/3 cup flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • Red, white, & blue M&Ms

How To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Add butter to a microwave dish and microwave in 20 second increments until butter is fully melted.

  3. Add the brown sugar and white sugar to a large mixing bowl with the melted butter and stir well to combine.

  4. Add in vanilla and egg and keep mixing.

  5. Pour in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix.
