Andes Mint Cookies

In a series of Christmas cookie posts, I plan to share some of what was made by our family for the holidays.  I didn’t get them up for the new year, but I have just as much hope to record what was made for the new year so I know what we baked.  Here’s the first of those recipes.

Andes Candies Cookies

¾ c butter or margarine
1 ½ c brown sugar
2 Tbsp water
2 eggs
2 c chocolate chips
2 ½ c flour
1 ¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
3 boxes Andes cookies

Directions: In sauce pan over low heat, melt butter; add sugar and water.  Then add chocolate chips.  Stir until partially melted.  Remove from heat; stir, then cool for 5 minutes.  Add eggs and dry ingredients; mix with a mixer on low speed until blended.  Chill 1 hour, but not longer.  Make into little balls and bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes.  While still hot, put Andies candy mint on each cookie, let it get soft then swirl mint with spoon.  Cool on baking rack.
