RECIPE: Chewy M&M Cookies

3/4 c. unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups M &Ms

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars until fluffy and light in color. Add egg and vanilla and blend in.  Mix in flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Stir in the M & M pieces. Using a standard-sized cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Press down slightly with the palm of your hand to flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until barely golden brown around the edges. (The tops will not brown, but do not cook longer than ten minutes). Let cool on the sheet for five minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely.
