Andes Mint Cookies

On my day off this week, I decided to bake some festive holiday cookies. If you like mint and chocolate, these are for you! I saw several versions of this recipe online and kind of manipulated it to fit my own preferences.

Your eyes are not deceiving you- they definitely have a green tint!

Here's what you need:

1 package of sugar cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 stick of butter, softened
1 egg
3 drops green food coloring
1/4 tsp. mint extract
1 cup (approx.) of Andes mint candies chopped

Pre-heat oven to 375. Mix first 5 ingredients, then add in mints. Place spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.

These were ready sooner than I expected. So, watch them or they will burn ;) 

And voila!

I ended up eating way too many straight out of the oven and made Mark take the rest to work. The recipe made several dozen small cookies.

Recipe from Betty Crocker found here.
