Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened slightly
  • ½ cup light brown sugar packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon pure peppermint extract
  • 1 ½ cups mint chips, chocolate chips and/or chopped Andes candies see note

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat butter and both sugars for 1-2 minutes, scraping the bowl as needed. Add egg and peppermint extract and beat until combined.
  • Slowly add the flour mixture, beating until just combined. Add 1 cup of mint chips/Andes/chocolate chips (the rest will be reserved for topping the cookies).
  • Scoop golf ball sized portions of dough (approximately 2 tablespoons) and place them a couple inches apart on the cookie sheets. Using the remaining ½ cup mix-ins, top each ball of dough with a few chips/candies (this makes for a prettier cookie).
  • Bake the cookies for 7-10 minutes until the edges are just beginning to turn golden brown and the very center is still slightly underdone. Rotate the baking sheets halfway through cooking time, if necessary.
  • Place the baking sheets on wire racks and allow the cookies to cool completely.

Notes

I used a combination of mint chips, chocolate chips and chopped Andes Mints. Feel free to use any variation of these. I highly recommend the Andes Mints.
