Please don’t hate me for sharing another delicious cookie recipe. ‘Tis the season for cookies!
This recipe is a new one for me. I was craving cookies yesterday, and I just happened to have a couple of packages of Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips. Hello? Is that not motivation enough to get in the kitchen and start baking?
The method for these cookies was different than I’m used to, but oh-my-goodness it worked so well. These cookies were incredibly tender and moist! I’m convinced now that refrigerating the dough before baking is essential, and I’m adding that to my must-do list when I make cookies. I think these might make it as a new addition to our holiday cookie plate!
