HOW TO MAKE MINT CHOCOLATE COOKIES
This recipe could not be easier. Simply melt butter and cool. Add both sugars and whisk until smooth. Add egg and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Combine dry ingredients together and whisk. Add to butter sugar mixture and stir in with a wooden spatula. Add Andes chips and chocolate chips and stir in. Cover the bowl with dough and chill at least 30 minutes. Scoop dough into 1,5 tablespoon size balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Add few chips on top of every cookie and let cool. To make the dough ahead, scoop ready dough into balls, place close together on a sheet and freeze. Place in a ziploc bag and store in freezer for up to 1 month.
I have a few cookie recipes that are a must for the holidays. My Ginger Molasses Cookies top the list and the White Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal cookies are right behind them. These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are giving them a run for their money. They are super easy to make, because we are starting the dough with melted butter. You do not need to pull out your mixer for this recipe. Just a mixing bowl and a whisk.
