Skill Level: Basic
1/4cuppacked light brown sugar
2tablespoonsplain Greek yogurt or sour creamat room temperature
1large eggat room temperature
1/2teaspoonpure vanilla extract
1and 1/3 cups all purpose flour
16unwrapped York mint candies
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.
