Happy St. Patrick's Day! Celebrate with Peppermint Patty Cookies!
This Betty Crocker inspired recipe is easy
to make and delicious to eat!
I think they taste just like a York Peppermint Patty~ YUM!
Stay tuned for more St. Patty's recipes all week, including Corned Beef and Cabbage with Honey Carrots and Horseradish Cream and a mouthwatering appetizer called Irish Boxtys!
(Makes 30 cookies)
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
8 drops green food coloring
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
1 package (6 oz) Andes creme de menthe mints
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I lined a baking sheet with a Silpat liner
and then used an ungreased additional baking sheet.
The cookies on the lined pan puffed up but stayed small and soft
but the cookies on the unlined pan spread out more
and were flat and had a nice crunch.
In a bowl mix together cookie mix, butter, extract, food coloring,
and egg until soft dough forms.
Roughly chop the Andes mints into small pieces.
Mix the chocolate chips and the mint pieces into dough.
Doesn't this look amazing?!
Using the small scoop, place 12 dough balls on each baking sheet.
Chocolate + Mint = a match made in heaven!
The perfect melted gooey center!
