Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies
Chocolate and mint are one of my favorite combinations. My mom made these for our annual Christmas Eve Party this year and they were light and refreshing. She found the recipe on the back of a bag of Andes Creme de Menthe baking pieces.
1/2 cup salted butter - softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 package Andes creme de menthe baking chips
2 2/3 sifted all purpose flour
Mix butter, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and eggs until well blended.
Stir in baking chips and then flour.
Chill for about one hour in the refrigerator.
Form 1 ounce balls and flatten with a fork.
Raise the oven rack one level above the middle.
Bake on non-stick baking pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes.
Cool on pans for 2 minutes before removing.
Makes around 4 dozen cookies.
