all about the basics (cookies)

This is one of those basic cookie recipes that you can basically change the flavor of. Instead of putting chocolate chips into the batter, which I ran out of, I used M&Ms for half of the batch and used white chocolate chips and walnuts for the rest of the batch.
M&M and White Chocolate Walnut Cookies
(Makes 20-24)

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
M&Ms, white chocolate chips, walnuts...
(basically whatever you want on the cookies)

Again, I usually opt for chocolate chips, or dark chocolate chips, but i ran out -__-

Anyway... directions... Mix softened butter with sugars. Whisk in the egg, vanilla extract, baking soda, and salt. Then add in the flour. (TIP: it's a habit of mine to sift my flour before i use it, but you don't have to) Last, just add in your toppings...

Let batter sit for about 10 minutes to stiffen. Then scoop tablespoon-sized portions onto baking sheet. Leave some room for the cookies to expand. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 F.
 10 minutes later...
TIP: to make the cookies uniformly round, I use a small tablespoon-size cookie scoop that I got as a gift from my secret santa this past Christmas...
 Here's how the white chocolate chip walnut cookies look...
They turned out really good too!
