Christmas M&M Cookie Bars

Truth be told, I've never been to a cookie swap, but this Friday I'll be attending my first one! While I have a few classic recipes to turn to, it's always nice to try out new ones each season. When I found Jamielyn's recipe for M&M bars, I knew these would be a hit at any gathering!

Not only does this recipe fall under the "easy" category, it's also completely from scratch. No semi-homemade goodness this week, y'all.

Two things to know about this recipe ahead of time:
1. The "optional" glaze in the recipe is really mandatory.
2. Ensure you have a very tall glass of milk to accompany your M&M Bar. You've been warned. 

Oh and also? Be sure you have people to share this with or you will eat all of it! Enjoy!

M&M Cookie Bars
recipe from I {heart} Naptime

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2  tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cube butter (12 TB) softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
11 oz  bag mini baking M&M’s (save a few to go on top)

1. Combine flour, baking soda and baking powder in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
2. Mix together in a large bowl: sugar, brown sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Mix for about 1 minute, or until fluffy. Then slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
3. Fold in m&m’s and then place dough in a 13×9 baking sheet lined with foil. Then place a few M&M’s on top.
4. Bake at 325 for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes clean.
(Optional) For glaze: Combine 1 cup powdered sugar + 1 TB milk and drizzle over cookies once cooled.
