I don't know what possessed me, but I mixed up five batches of cookie dough yesterday, and today I am a baking fool! It seemed like such a great idea at the time, but even for us, that's a lot of cookie baking!
These Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are totally worth the time and effort - but I should have called them "Goldilocks Cookies", because they can be made to your perfect minty taste! Thick and chewy, and so good warm from the oven with a tall glass of cold milk!
I love the minty green color at this time of the year - they look wonderful on a Christmas cookie platter! Add pure vanilla for perfect flavor, or a touch of peppermint extract for a slightly stronger peppermint flavor. Dark chocolate and minty-green chocolate chips add lots of chocolate and mint flavor - but again, if you prefer a stronger peppermint flavor you can use peppermint chips exclusively.
And every time I make these, more than a few folks tell me that they are their ABSOLUTE FAVORITES! Score one for Mama V!
We love chocolate chip cookies that are THICK and super chewy...and these are the perfect texture. They freeze well, if you are trying to get a jump on your holiday baking.
I just know that I have to hide them REALLY well, because they will disappear fast if I'm not looking! Hope that you get a chance to make these and share with someone you love!
