Peppermint n Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peppermint n Chocolate Chip Cookies

I was in the grocery store the other day and found some different Andes baking chips. These were peppermint and cream baking chips and I knew right away that I had to try them in a cookie recipe. I bought several bags and made cookies with both semi sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. Both recipes turned out great! The cookies were very flavorful and I also loved the color that the peppermint chips added to this cookie. These would be great to make for Valentine's Day! I'd be your sweetie if you made me a batch of these!!!

Peppermint n Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 bag Andes® Peppermint Baking Chips
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips
2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup cake flour
Blend butter, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla and eggs until mixed.
Stir in baking chips and then flour.
Chill for at least one hour in refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350
Put a heaping round spoonful of dough on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350-degrees for about 8-10 minutes (don't overcook!)

Cool on the baking sheets for about 3-5 minutes before removing.

I think these would be great in white cupcakes too for Valentine's Day!

Don't you just wanna dive into this pool of goodness?

Make sure to chill your dough...I promise it makes a difference!

They turned out just perfect!

See the pinkish red color...that's why these are perfect for Valentine's Day!

I love when the chocolate chips are all melty and gooey on top of a cookie...I grabbed this baby and ate it before anyone else could get to it!
