Andes Creme De Menthe Cookies

So do you love Andes mints as much as me?  Do you look forward to them at the end of you meal when you eat at the Olive Garden?  Then this is a cookie for you.  These are a soft cookie on the inside with a firm outside.  The mint chocolate explosion in your mouth when you take a bite of these is to die for.  They are one of my favorite cookies.

Andes Creme De Menthe Cookies
From: Andes
Yields: about 40+ cookies

1/2 cup salted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 packages (4.67 oz. each) Andes Mint Thins chopped or the much easier 1 package (10 oz) Andes baking chips (see picture below, I always find them at Wal-mart next to the chocolate chips)
2 2/3 cup flour

Blend butter and sugars together until throughly combined.  Add baking soda, powder, vanilla and eggs and mix well.

Stir in Andes candies and then flour.  Chill approximately one hour or longer in the fridge.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Measure out approximately 1 oz of dough and form a ball and slightly flatten.  Place on non-stick baking pans and bake for 8-10 minutes.  Cool on pans for 2 minutes before removing. 

The ever easy baking chips!
