Hi, Everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend! I can’t believe how fast this fall is flying by; as I was baking these cookies that I’m sharing with you today I realized there are only two months left before Christmas is here! If you are a fan of mint chocolate, you are going to love these Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies. I made these for my husband the other day because he loves anything mint chocolate. These cookies are very soft and chewy, and well, minty! If you are a mint chocolate fan too, you should definitely try them out! Here’s the recipe…
ANDES CREME DE MENTHE COOKIES
(Recipe from Tootsie Roll Industries)
*Makes 4 dozen cookies*
YOU WILL NEED:
2 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (4oz) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 package (10 oz) Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips
1. First, combine softened unsalted butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar, vanilla and eggs. Stir in the baking chips. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda. With the mixer running, begin adding the flour mixture to the butter mixture until a smooth dough forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
2. Preheat your oven to 350 deg F and line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Form cookie dough into equal sized balls and place on baking sheets. Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes, until the edges are lightly browned. Let cool for a couple of minutes before eating.
Happy Baking, Everyone!
