Andes Candy Cane Cookies

As you may know we’re pretty wild about Peppermint around here. So to bump into a cookie recipe that’s just chewy enough on the inside and crispy enough around the edges AND satisfies that Peppermint “thing” we have going on too…

well…let me just say, they didn’t last long!


Ingredients:

1 cup softened butter

1-1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

3 cups flour–I used whole wheat

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

2/3 cup Andes Creme de Menthe Chips

5 candy canes coarsely crushed

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next you’ll want to crush the candy canes. We used the Pampered Chef Chopper to make it easier.

In bowl of mixer add butter and sugars and beat until fluffy–about 3 minutes scraping sides of bowl as needed. Add eggs and blend on low until well mixed. In a separate bowl add flour, spice, baking powder and soda. Stir to combine. Add dry ingredients and mix on low until well blended. Add mint chips.

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough in tablespoon sized balls. Dip the top in crushed candy canes…

and place candy-side-up on cookie sheet.

Bake about 13 minutes. Slide cookies and parchment off pan and allow to cool before removing from paper.

 


Isn’t the Pumpkin Pie Spice an interesting surprise? I thought so, but it gave this yummy thing just the right…something. Let me warn you though–two different fellows walked out of here with a stack of these this evening, because one was just not enough–that’s how good they are.

I hope you love them too.  :}
