I made these cookies on the same day that I made my coffee cookies with clove. While those coffee and clove cookies are a bit more adventurous, these Andes Mint Cookies speak to the traditionalist. A new friend of mine told me she deleted the coffee clove cookie email without even opening it. A new friend that a) not only reads my blog but subscribes to my newsletter AND b) isn’t afraid to tell it like it is? Keeper. Also, the first time I had her over with a group of ladies, she brought wine AND started cleaning up my kitchen for me at the end of the evening. We should all be taking notes at this point. Hopefully she doesn’t like Andes mints and will delete this email too so she’s doesn’t think I’m a crazy person. (Hi, Dawn!)

These cookies are irresistibly chewy but still crisp around the edges, thanks to a bit of cornstarch in the dough — similar to my popular M&M cookies.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 10 ounce package Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips

Directions:

  1. In a bowl, mix together flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.

  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or using a hand mixer), cream together butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy (2-3 minutes). With the mixer on low, add in egg and vanilla. Return mixer to medium and mix until incorporated. Scrape sides if needed.

  3. With the mixer back on low, add dry ingredient mixture gradually until dough forms. Mix in Andes baking chips. Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat and set aside.

  4. Form balls from approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough. Place on baking sheet (I did 8 at a time, they do spread a bit). Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges are just barely golden. Remove from oven and let cool for a couple of minutes on baking sheet before removing and placing on wire rack to finish cooling. Store in airtight container.

Husband’s take: He hasn’t tried these gems (yet), but I served them at a party I hosted for some girlfriends and they were a hit!
Changes I would make: None.
Difficulty: Easy.

  7. Can’t wait to make these! I wonder if you could substitute the vanilla extract for mint extract?

    • You could use mint extract instead but you’d want to cut way down on the amount as it’s quite potent. Probably 1/4 teaspoon so it doesn’t overpower the rest of the flavors.

  8. My cookies are not coming out flat like the pictures. Should I flatten the balls of dough?

  9. Hi. Can I used the Andes mints broken up instead of the baking chips?
