If you like bakery style store bought M&M cookies then wait until you try this m&m cookie recipe! Find out how to get that crackly top, m&m garnish and a delicious cookie recipe that resembles a bakery-style cookie all in this post! 

Now a good recipe has much to do with the outcome of a pretty cookie but with these helpful tips you can make that crackly top and pretty garnished cookie with chocolate chips or candy poking out on about any type of cookie! To start use a scoop to make more uniform cookies and flatten dough gently from the tops. I think the amount of shortening and butter here help tremendously, for the cookie to spread out and flatten nicely on it’s own. And the thinner the cookie the more candy is likely to show. Now to get a nice crackly top I like to lightly push down the tops of each cookie quickly right after baking (using an oven mitten.) Then garnish the cookies with a few M&M’s by sticking them right into the tops of each cookie. This only works on hot cookies right after the oven so you’ll need to work fast because the more they cool the less they’ll likely stick to the dough. The pudding mix may have much to do with the taste that resembles the store-bought taste so definitely give it a try and follow these tips!
