Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies

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.

You will need a bag of these.

Soften butter and place in mixing bowl.

Add baking soda and baking powder.

Add eggs.

Mix all ingredients together with electric mixer.

Add flour and Creme de Menthe baking chips.

Stir all ingredients together with a wooden spoon.

Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheets that have been sprayed with cookie spray.

Bake in 350 oven about 8-10 minutes or until done. I think mine took longer.

¾ cup dark brown sugar

½ cup white granulated sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. vanilla

Measure out approximately 1 oz. of dough. For ball and slightly flatten. Raise oven rack one level above middle and bake on non-stick baking pans. Bake at 350˚ for approximately 8-10 minutes.

    Am cursing the fact creme de menthe chips aren’t available here in Australia. These look amazing.

      You need to have friends ship you some! I’m just afraid they might melt on the way. :-(
