I actually look forward to Mondays because of Cookie Mondays! I have tried so many different types of cookies this past year, and I have really grown to LOVE cookies. I think I’m officially addicted.
Guys, I found another favorite cookie. The Peppermint Oreo Cookie is a phenomenal cookie, because this cookie includes mint, dark chocolate chips, and it’s SIMPLE! Remember, I’m all about making baking easy, so this cookie recipe is up my alley. The Peppermint flavor is NOT strong, which is really nice because I don’t like the mint overpowering the rest of the flavors. I really hope you guys love this cookie as much as I do, please let me know if you do try this recipe!
The Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips is a seasonal item and I found mine at my local Walmart, however I have seen some at Target as well. The texture is very similar to baking chocolate chips and has a very subtle flavor.
It doesn’t matter which brand of White Cake Mix you use, as long as it is White Cake mix, below are some examples of how it’s sold. It’s actually cheaper to purchase the cake mixes at your local grocery store because of ongoing sales. For this recipe, I used the Pillsbury brand.
