  • 1 stick 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup milk chocolate chips melted
  • 1/2 Cup Andes baking chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt until fluffy. Beat in the egg and then gradually beat in the flour just until the dough forms.
  • Using a cookies press (I used the Christmas tree shape) press out the cookies about a half inch apart on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until very lightly golden brown along the edges.
  • Transfer on to a wired rack to cool completely.
  • Melt the chocolate and using an off set spatula, spread a thin layer on the back of each cookie, sprinkle on some of the Andes mints, place in the fridge to harden at least 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
