The most time-consuming aspect of baking cookies is not mixing together the dough, it’s using the dough to make the actual cookies -- dropping the dough on a cookie sheet, setting the timer, getting the finished cookies out of the oven, waiting for the cookie pans to cool, dropping dough on another cookie sheet, etc., etc., etc. Here is a way to bake the dough in one pan – and they are as delicious as individual cookies!
You can use this basic recipe and substitute candy for the chocolate chips. Use M&Ms or chop up larger candy pieces and stir them into the dough. The result is absolutely delicious!
