The Cookie Jar – Minty White Chocolate Cookies

About a month ago I was at Cost Plus – World Market and found a bag of Andes Peppermint Crunch – wasn’t sure what I would do with them but they sounded good so I bought them, brought them home and stuck them in the freezer.

This week as I was doing some bedtime reading of my most recent holiday baking magazines I found the perfect recipe to use them in – the one I am sharing today – minty white chocolate cookies!  What a perfect combination – two of my favorite flavors!   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?
