These were based on a shortbread cookie dough, as I was out of baking powder and baking soda. And it's snowing really big flakes and I didn't want to got to the store!
I used 1 cup butter, whipped, 1/2 cup sugar, whipped some more, 1 egg yolk, and yep, whipped even more, some almond extract. Then stirred in 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour, and most of a bag of mini-minty chips from the sausage/cheese place that opens up at the mall during the holidays. Yep.
Rolled it into balls and I flattened them slightly with a jelly glass dipped in sugar.
Baked at about 350F convection, switching pans halfway through, for about 8-10 minutes.
These are really buttery, with a crunch from the candies on the mint chips. Yum.
