Minty White Chocolate Cookies

Minty White Chocolate Cookies

Minty White Chocolate Cookies are so pretty and delicious and perfect for the holidays!  I originally shared this recipe back in 2007 and when I went to look at the recipe the other day I saw that the photos had disappeared!  Now there were only two photos and they weren’t very good photos so it really wasn’t much of a loss.  It was also a good excuse to make the cookies and take new photos of them!

These cookies combine two of my favorite holiday flavors – white chocolate and peppermint.  If you have spent any time here on the blog you know how much I love these two flavors! I used the Andes Peppermint Crunch for the cookies which I found at Cost Plus-World Market but I have seen it in the grocery stores too during the holiday time.  Whenever I see the stuff I grab a bag or two because I love it so much and you can only get it during the holidays.  Just pop them in the freezer so you can have peppermint goodness all year round.  If you can’t find the Andes Peppermint Crunch you could use some chopped up candy cane.

I have to say that the dough for these cookies is SO GOOD you may never get any of them baked – but save some for baking because there is nothing better than a warm cookie right out of the oven.  We shared a plate of these with our neighbors and they received rave reviews!!  (they even agreed to help me move a dresser upstairs after eating the cookies – thank you Katie, Tom and Debbie!)

    I did the exact same thing. My bag is still in the freezer. I thought I would eat them plain or see if there was a recipe on the bag. I’ll have to try this recipe.

    I want to make these for a Christmas cookie swap party for my work… Does anyone know how many this recipe makes?…. If you are using the Andes Peppermint Crunch does that take the place of the peppermint and white chocolate chips?
