Ingredients you’ll need for these Lucky Charm Cookies

  • Baking soda. Helps your cookies spread
  • Salt. Enhances all of the flavors
  • Granulated sugar. Sweetens your cookies and makes them softer
  • Unsalted butter. Makes your cookies tender and gives them flavor

How to make this Lucky Charms cookie recipe

Line cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cereal, baking soda and salt until well combined.

In a large bowl mix sugar and butter in medium-high speed, around 1 minute. Scrape the bottom of the bowl and add egg and egg yolk and vanilla. Mix until just combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just incorporated. Do not over mix your dough!

Fold in the marshmallows into the batter using a spatula.

Scoop the dough with a large cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) to form evenly sized dough balls. Place them in a cookie sheet, cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Pre-heat oven to 350 Fahrenheit and place the chilled lucky charms cookie dough into the prepared baking sheets, 2.5 inches apart from each other.

Bake lucky charms cookies for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges start to turn a light golden brown, one cookie tray at a time. Remove from the oven and immediately add a few extra marshmallows on top of the cookies for garnish.

Let the cookies cool for around 5 minutes in the cookie sheets, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

Enjoy with a glass of cold milk!

Expert tips for making perfect cookies

  • Use room temperature ingredients for best results
  • Measure the flour using the level method. This means, spooning it into a measuring cup, then leveling it with the back of a knife without compacting it
  • After the flour is added to the wet ingredients. make sure to mix until just combined. Once the flour is mixed with liquids, the gluten proteins are activated and they start to develop. Over mixed dough can result in hard, cakey cookies.
  • Add 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips to your cookies for white chocolate Lucky Charm cookies
  • Make sure your oven temperature reaches 350 Fahrenheit before popping the cookies inside
  • Bake one cookie sheet at a time in the middle rack of your oven for better results. In the meantime, leave the rest of the cookie dough balls refrigerated.
  • The baking time determines how crispy or chewy your cookies will be. For a crispier cookie bake for a bit longer (around 15 minutes), and for a chewy cookie bake until just done. Remember that cookies keep baking in the cookie sheet when they’re already out of the oven.
  • For perfectly shaped cookies, use a circular cookie cutter slightly bigger than your cookies (or anything hollow and circular) and make a circular motion to swirl your cookies around inside the cookie cutter. This needs to be done as soon as the cookies are out of the oven.
