Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt or sour cream at room temperature
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 16 unwrapped York mint candies

Instructions

  • In large mixing bowl, beat together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter until light and fluffy. Beat in the Greek yogurt, egg, and vanilla, just until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt. Slow beat into the butter-sugar mixture until fully combined. Let chill for 1 hour or up to 48 hours.
  • Place rack in the center of oven and preheat 400 degrees F. Unwrap Andes mints. For each cookie, scoop 1 tablespoon of dough, flatten it slightly, then form it around mint so that the mint is fully enclosed in a dough “package.” The dough will feel sticky, so wet your fingers a little as needed to help with shaping the dough. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 9 to 10 minutes, until light brown (cookies will appear underdone). Let cool on baking sheet for 1 minute, then remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely, at least 30 minutes.
