We've been so busy lately and I haven't had much time to bake like I usually do this time of the year. Needless to say, I am playing catch up. I am a big fan of chocolate mint so this afternoon Micaela and I experimented by making some cookies using the Andes Mint chips. I've had this bag for a while and everytime I opened the pantry, they were screaming "bake me, try me".
Micaela is always happy to "help me" in the kitchen, here she is proudly holding a sheet full of cookies before we put them in the oven.
I am happy to report, these cookies got a thumbs up from the whole family. Micaela even let Maxi sample them.
The recipe can be found on the package, here it is for your reference.
Andes Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 sticks of butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups Andes Baking Chips
Beat butter, sugars, egg and vanilla in bowl with mixer. Mix in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in Andes Baking Chips. Drop by spoonful, 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes-- til golden brown. Makes 5-6 dozen.
I hope you will take time out of your schedule to try these! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
