Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies

These delightful Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies are elevated with Andes Mints Peppermint Crunch baking chips for a fun twist on a classic chewy sugar cookie. You'll love the peppermint flavor in these cookies and they will make a great addition to your cookie tray this holiday season.

It's cookie sharing time! These cookies are soooo good. Too good not to share!

I recently found these yummy Andes® Peppermint Crunch baking chips at Target and knew I had to find a cookie to put them in and I settled on a great chewy sugar cookie recipe I found on Allrecipes.

The addition of the baking chips turned out to be a great decision because these cookies are DELISH!

The result is a perfectly minty (not overpowering) sugar cookie that is crispy on the outside but chewy on the inside. Be sure to not over bake these, so they stay soft in the middles. 

They will be done when the tops JUST START to crackle in the oven so watch them closely.

These cookies are so perfect, I think I may have started a new holiday tradition!
