does anyone know if u put m&ms; in a cookie (well, on top) and bake it, wil they come out w/ the M&Ms; in the same spot??
that probably makes no sense…..ok, I am thinking of making cookies w/ M&Ms;, but instead of just mixing them in, making a dough ball, flattening it out a bit and then laying the M&Ms; on top in the shape of baseball lines. I am wondering if i baked them, if they will come out looking like baseball cookies lol.  or maybe iam crazy

I think it will work.  It depends on the cookie dough though…some doughs get very soft in the oven and spread a lot.  I think I would set them up on the cookie sheet, and then refigerate them for a while before baking to minimize the spread.

Although it’s heresy to mention this on the site (jk), replacing some of the butter with shortening will also minimize spread.

the M&Ms; could shift a little during baking as the dough rises (even if there’s no spread) so maybe it’s better to put them on after baking if the decoration is important; or if they move during baking, you can just say the batter hit the ball really hard and knocked the lines off kilter LOL wink
