I just love mint and peppermint especially in baked goods. It adds a delicious coolness to the recipe that I really enjoy. These wonderful cookies have just the right taste–and they are so easy to make. You can have a batch of these in your oven in about 8-10 minutes and eating these delicious treats within 20-30 minutes! It’s a great cookie to whip up for holiday parties, but you can usually get the creme de menthe baking chips all year round now so these can be made all throughout the year.
This is another fabulous cookie I found off the back of an Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Chips package. Their website is amazing. Here is a sample of some of the recipes they have for these great baking chips: Andes Sandwich Cookies, Andes Marbled Brownies, Andes Whoopie Pies, Andes Cheesecake Supreme, Andes Mousse Pie, Andes Creamy Brownies, Andes S’Mores, Andes Chocolate Truffles. These are just some of the recipes posted. I highly recommend you check out their website. They have some great looking stuff.
If you’re looking for an easy, delicious cookie for school lunches, potlucks, office parties, or to share with family and friends, consider trying this delectable cookie.
