Mint Chip Cookies by My Baking Heart

I know I’m a little early, but Happy St. Patrick’s Day, sisters! You can’t celebrate this lucky day without a tiny bit of green, right? Well, what better way than with a chewy & chocolatey cookie, filled with bits of Andes mints!

These are super-easy and make a perfect treat for school parties, office potlucks or the occasional mid-afternoon sweet! Because it doesn’t matter how much or well I eat, I always crave a sweet after lunch. Just a note about the dough: It’s very crumbly, even after chilling. Don’t worry, though… it will come together when you’re forming the dough balls!

Mint Chip Cookies
Adapted from: Fearless Homemaker & Natalie Sélavy
Yields: About 2-1/2 dozen cookies

1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp dark cocoa powder
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1-1/4 c all-purpose flour
4 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 c + 1 tbsp light brown sugar, packed
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 lg egg
5 oz (1/2 bag) Andes mint baking chips

In a medium bowl, whisk baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder, salt and flour together, and set aside. Cream the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer, then add both sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about two minutes. Add the vanilla, then the egg, mixing until fully incorporated.

Next, add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, mixing until incorporated. Then, gently stir in the Andes baking chips. Cover bowl and chill dough for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. While dough is chilling, line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Then, when dough is ready, portion into tablespoon-sized balls. Lightly press each dough ball with your fingertips to flatten the cookie a bit. Slide the baking sheets into the oven and bake for 8 to 9 minutes, or until just set on top. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Looks like these turned out fab for you! And how perfect to make ‘em for St. Patrick’s Day. =) Also, yay for sisterhood + sororities! I’m an Alpha Delta Pi + was the Panhellenic president at my college (Vanderbilt) so sororities are a big deal to me. =)

  2. [...] Chip Cookies I came across a few weeks ago. They looked wonderful and fit the bill perfectly for a March LSK post! They’re really easy to put together and once you’ve had a bite, will put a huge smile [...]
