Mint Chip Sugar Cookies



Ingredients
  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 1½ c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ tsp. peppermint extract
  • a few drops of green green food coloring (I used about 3 drops, use how many you want to make the cookies the color green you like)
  • 3 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cream of tarter
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 6 oz. Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Chips
  • 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  • Cream butter and sugar for about three minutes. It should be fluffy.
  • Add eggs, green food coloring and peppermint extract. Cream for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Measure dry ingredients in a separate bowl or sifter. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix until combined.
  • Add mint and chocolate chips. Gently stir to until incorporated.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop cookies using a 2 Tablespoon size cookie scoop.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Watch for the cookies to begin cracking. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes. Transfer to cookie rack and finish cooling.
  • Note: If you choose to use a smaller cookie scoop reduce baking time to 8 minutes.
