Mint Truffle Cookies

It’s getting closer… only one more round in the “12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies” after today!

Remember these Cheesecake Truffles I made for a wedding a few weeks ago? I loved the little boxes so much, I picked up some more in red to package up mint truffles for a Christmas Party tomorrow night. I will be posting pictures of those and my other decorations for the party soon!

I’ve made many batches of Raspberry Truffle Cookies, I shared that idea on my blog back in May of 2009. In that post I suggested using Mint Truffles but I never posted a recipe or pictures. With homemade mint truffles on hand and baking a new Christmas cookie on my “to-do” list, I settled on making these Mint Truffle Cookies. This time around I made these with regular cookie dough, but I think these are even more delicious chopped up in chocolate cookie dough. Although I am using homemade truffles, you could use purchase truffles or even Andes mints.

The recipe I have included below is a regular chocolate chip cookie dough from a local cookbook I often use that I have altered by increasing the flour. I found that the truffle cake run quite a bit and it helps to have a stiffer dough. The other hint I have when making these is to chop the truffles into small pieces. This will help prevent the truffles from melting and running too much.

Krista’s Mint Truffle Cookies

1 cup Butter

1 1/2 cups Sugar

3/4 cup Brown Sugar

3 Eggs

1 tablespoon Vanilla

1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoon Salt

4 1/2 cups Flour

1 cup Chocolate Chips

1 1/2 cups Chopped Mint Truffle Pieces

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In a separate bowl stir baking soda and salt into flour. Stir dry ingredients into butter mixture just until blended. Carefully stir in chocolate chips and truffle pieces. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.
