Well, I was looking for a cookie to make for a school function, the annual Cookie Extravaganza, and found these Andes baking chips in the baking aisle in the supermarket. I love Andes mints so I thought I’d try the recipe on the back of the package. Am I glad I did! So is my family! So are the friends who received them! So are the teachers and kids at school! Minty goodness! Some of the best recipes come from the back of packages!
This is not your typical cookie dough. It’s very difficult to stir in the Andes chips and flour so I put on food safe gloves and worked it with my hands until it was combined. That really took no time at all. Don’t skip the chilling part. I’ve made these twice as of publication and once I did the one hour chilling and once I did overnight. Both worked fine. When you flatten the cookie make sure they are consistent so they bake evenly. The recipe says it makes 4 dozen but I used a 1-inch (ice cream type) scoop and I got a little more than 6 dozen.
