Coutdown to Carolyn... 16 days

Andes Mint Cookies:

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 T. water
12 ounces chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
24 Andes mints

In a medium-sized sauce pan, melt together the butter, brown sugar, and water, stirring occasionally. Add the chocolate chips and stir until melted. Let stand 10 minutes to cool. Add remaining ingredients. Chill dough at least 1 hour because it will be really sticky. You can cover tightly with saran wrap and stick in fridge overnight if you want to.

Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350° F. for 8 to 9 minutes.

Remove from the oven and on top of each cookie, place half an Andes mint. Allow the mint to melt and then swirl the mint over the cookie with the back of a spoon or knife.

Oh Carolyn! Are you dreaming about cookies??

This has nothing to do with your post--but Thank you! I just saw your comment. I am willingly listening to everyones advice, and taking that which I deem applicable to me. (please ignore spelling errors it is past my bedtime)

I feel good most of the time, it's just at night. And I just may make some snack mix...would it be wrong to throw some butter sticks in it?

Love ya!

Hey Estee, I'm definitely keeping this recipe for future reference! By the way, have you tried the Andes mint browines at Starbucks? YUM-O! ;)

Does your family have to buy flour in 25lb bags too?
Chris now buys all of our baking supplies in bulk to "save time"
What I want to know is, who will save my waistline?
