Stop ‘n Go Cookies

1 ½ c. all-purpose flour

½ c. cocoa powder

¼ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

½ c. butter softened

1 c. sugar

1 egg

1 ½ tsp vanilla

Red, yellow, and green M&Ms

 

Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Beat butter and sugar together until combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat on medium speed until combined. Beat in flour mixture.

For each cookie, shape 1 Tablespoon of cookie dough into a rectangle and place on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. You may insert a popsicle stick into the cookie if desired. Press red, yellow and green M&Ms into each rectangle for the lights on the stoplight.  

Bake for 8-10 minutes in a 350 oven. Makes about 26 cookies.

(Tip: always remember to place cookie dough on a cooled cookie sheet. Do not reuse a hot cookie sheet for baking another batch of cookies. Either cool it off first (only takes a few seconds if you wave it in the air a bit) or use two cookie sheets.)
