Soft Andes Mint Chocolate Chunk Cookies via Sally's Baking Addiction
makes 3 dozen cookies
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups chopped Andes Mints OR Andes Mints Creme de Menth Baking Chips
- 1/4 cup milk (if needed, see note)
In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking soda, baking powder, salt, flour, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Add 1/2 of the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix for about 1 minute on low speed. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined. By hand, fold in the Andes Mints.
Drop by rounded tablespoon-fuls* onto ungreased baking sheet or silicone mat. Bake for 10-12 minutes until sides *slightly* begin to brown. I took mine out of the oven at exactly 10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.
*The dough is very, very thick and should come together easily. However, if it is TOO thick to handle, add up to 1/4 cup milk before adding the Andes Mint Chips
*If making larger cookies, I suggest dropping dough by 1/4 cup measurements and shaping into a ball. Bake for 11-12 minutes.
