Copycat Recipe: Subway cookies, M&M’s or Chocolate chip!

Subway cookies are an all-time favourite of mine. I’ve wanted to bake some forever, but due to sugar cookie trauma’s as a child I’ve been postponing. When I finally build up the courage to make them, it took some time to perfect them. But here they are! And surprisingly easy to make, too.

I’ve fed them to my D&D group, which always orders Subway before every session, and I got their seal of approval. You can choose to make these with M&M’s or chocolate chips/chunks. 

These cookies need a little more prep time! The dough needs to be chilled at least 3 hours.


  • 250 gr butter, at room temperature
    (or microwave for 30 seconds on full power, right out of the fridge)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 80 gr white sugar
  • 200 gr M&M’s or chocolate chips
  • 200 gr brown sugar
  • 250 gr flour
  • 2 tsp bakingpowder

Sift the flour with the baking powder and set it aside. Beat the butter with the sugars until fluffy. Add the vanilla extract and the eggs one by one, beating well after each egg. Add in the sifted flour, one spoon at a time, while beating the mixture. Add the M&M’s or chocolate chips (or both!) to the dough and combine. Cover the dough and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably over night.

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a special baking mat. Use an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to create balls of about 50 grams.
Place the cookies on the baking sheet, allowing 3 cm between each cookie so they can expand. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Do not overcook, as Subway’s cookies are soft and chewy.

Allow cookies to cool for 20 to 30 minutes on the parchment paper, so they can get a little firmer! Otherwise they will break or the soft middle will stick to the paper.

Happy Baking!
