Mint Chip Sugar Cookies

Mint Chip Sugar Cookies


  • 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


  1. Cream butter and sugar for about three minutes. It should be fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, green food coloring and peppermint extract. Cream for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Measure dry ingredients in a separate bowl or sifter. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix until combined.
  4. Add mint and chocolate chips. Gently stir to until incorporated.
  5. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop cookies using a 2 Tablespoon size cookie scoop.
  6. 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.
  7. Note: If you choose to use a smaller cookie scoop reduce baking time to 8 minutes.

  1. Oh YUM! I just pulled my first batch from the oven and they are DIVINE!! Andes pieces are my fav, so I knew I had to try these. The grocer was sold out of the Andes pieces, so I bought some boxes of them and chopped them into nice size chunks by hand and tossed them in. Next time I will stir the chips/candies in by hand though… I used my KitchenAid paddle attachment today and my pretty green dough got a little “muddy” looking, just too strong for them dainty candies I guess?! Thank you for sharing this recipe – a new one for my book!
