Mint Cookies

recipe from my friend Elizabeth S

1/2 c salted butter, softened
3/4 c dark brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
2 t vanilla extract
2 eggs
10 oz Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips
2 2/3 c sifted all-purpose flour

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Blend butter, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and eggs until mixed.
3. Stir in baking chips then flour. Chill about one hour in the fridge.
4. Roll into 1" balls and slightly flatten.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

In my opinion: These cookies are fabulous, especially if you are a mint lover like I am. Everyone asks my friend for this recipe. I made them for a Cookie Bake-Off at work today and got lots of compliments.
