Creme de Menthe Cookies

I am in love with Andes mints. (they're the same ones that they have at Olive Garden) So these are by far my FAVORITE cookies. I just made some yesterday, and gave them away to neighbors as gifts. They're super easy, and always turn out so pretty! Thought I'd share the love.
Creme de Menthe Cookies:
1/2 cup butter- softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 pkg. Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips
2 2/3 cups sifted flour
Mix butter, sugars, baking soda and powder, vanilla, and eggs until well mixed. Stir in the baking chips, and then the flour. Chill in the refrigerator for about an hour. Measure out about 1 oz. of dough. Form into balls. Place on cookie sheet, and slightly flatten. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. (They will look a little puffy, and kinda like they need to be cooked longer, but just pull them out, and let them set on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes before you move them to a cooling rack. They'll flatten out and be perfectly gooey.)
