  • 1 egg - at room temperature

  2. In a large bowl put the softened butter with the white sugar and the light brown sugar and mix with an electric mixer for 2 minutes until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat again for 1 minute.
  4. Finish by adding the dry ingredients, flour, baking powder and fleur de sel and mix with a spatula or wooden spoon just until combined.
  5. Then add 3/4 of the m&m's and mix quickly to incorporate them.
  6. Using an ice cream scoop or your hands, form the cookie dough into balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. (leave a space of 2 inch / 5cm between each ball)
  7. Place the prepared baking sheet with the cookie dough balls in the freezer for 15 minutes (or 1 hour in the fridge)
  8. And bake in the preheated oven at middle height for 12-15 minutes (depending on the diameter) until the cookies are golden on top and still slightly soft in the center.
  9. Let the cookies cool a little on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack.
