Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies

Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies

As I go grocery shopping during the holidays, I put things in my cart that I  find interesting.   I saw these Andes Creme De Menthe Baking chips and immediately put them in my cart.  On the back of the package, there was a recipe for Chunk cookies.  My hubby likes to take cookies into the office during the holidays and I love baking them.

The kids and I set out to make the cookies.  We started by beating the butter with brown sugar,  granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and eggs.  Then the Andes Baking chips and flour are stirred into the butter mixture.  The dough is chilled for about one hour.  The recipe stated to measure out about 1 ounce of dough, the kids and I measured out one heaping tablespoon of the dough.  The dough is formed into a ball and placed on a baking sheet.  The balls are flatted with the bottom of a glass ever so slightly.  Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes rotating the baking sheet halfway through the baking time.  Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 2 minutes before removing them to a wire cooling rack.

Once you taste these cookies you will ask for more.  They are slightly crunchy with a chewy center.  When you bite into them, you get a nice cool refreshing taste of mint and chocolate.  MMM love it.
This recipe makes 4 dozen.  I sent two dozen off to the office with hubby and the kids and I ate the rest.
