Mint Chocolate Cookies

It’s my favorite time of the year when we are able to share our baked goods with other fellow food bloggers.  Yes, its time for the annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  I have participated in this swap for the past two years and Julie and Lindsay do an amazing job of organizing it every year.  We also had some great sponsors who matched money to contribute to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.

My FAVORITE all time cookie is the classic chocolate chip.  I didn’t want to bore my cookie receivers with this classic recipe so I decided to adjust to a more holiday type by making mint chocolate cookies. Two different types of baking mints with some grated chocolate is a match made in heaven.  I mean I was happy with the way they turned out and I kept a couple of them for myself.  You know so I could taste test them before I sent the batches off.  Olivia was even pleased with the results but she is a HUGE fan of cookies.

Here are the cookies that I have whipped up the past two years!

3 cups flour
1/3 cup Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
1/3 cup Andes creme de menthe Baking Chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream the butter and both sugars until they are light and fluffy (approx. 3 minutes). Beat in the eggs one at a time. Add in the vanilla, baking soda and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients until everything is well combined. Stir in both Andes mints and grated chocolate.

Place the batter into a large bowl and top with saran wrap. Chill the dough in refrigerator for 24 hours.
