Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup 2 sticks butter, room temp
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 -2 cups Andes mints chopped or Nestle Winter chocolate mint chips, or combo.

Instructions
 

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Cream butter and sugars together in bowl of stand mixer (or with hand mixer). Scrape sides of bowl and add eggs; beat until well combined. Add vanilla, soda, and salt then add the flour one cup at a time and beat after each addition. (If you are using a hand mixer you may have to hand stir the last cup of flour into the dough.) Stir in Andes mints or baking chips and line a cookie sheet with parchment.
  • Roll the dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons each, and place about 2 inches apart on baking sheet. I like to top with some extra Andes chunks, but that's optional.
  • Bake for 8 - 10 minutes until edges just start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack.
