For day 1 of my 12 pinnacle days of Christmas I am sharing my favorite Christmas cookie. 
Everyone needs to try this recipe! 

Their photo is so much prettier than mine. Sorry, I didn’t have time to pull out my SLR and arrange a photo session this time. 

I first discovered it from Six Sisters’ Stuff via pinterest. They are so easy to make. I have the recipe memorized because it only takes 4 ingredients. 

You will Need 
1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 package of Andes Mints* 
Mix cake mix, oil, and eggs together. Drop spoonfuls of dough onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 6-9 minutes. 

Immediately place an Andes Mint on top of each cookie and spread it around as the mint melts. 

* I tried using Godiva chocolate squares and that was really delicious too. I even used the kind with raspberry filling, so if mint isn’t your thing you can modify with just about any chocolate candy. 

I have also made these cookies using Andes Holiday Squares, which I found at the grocery store.

 It just made the cookies that much more festive. 

You can use the holiday candy version to create the chocolate frosting, shown on the left in the photo below. Or if wait and let the cookies cool for about 5 minutes then you can place the chocolate on top and just push it down on the sides with a spoon to leave the decorative design shown on the right.

I have brought these cookies to parties, given them away as gifts with recipe included (that was a hit), and just made them for myself, because why not? 

That’s my favorite Christmas Cookie recipe, and you can also find it over at for the virtual Christmas Cookie exchange.  

What’s your favorite Christmas Cookie?
