Life has been crazy the past few days. My Dad had to go in for emergency surgery Monday night, and again on Tuesday. He’s very sick with complications from diabetes. I won’t go in to the gory details, but all I ask is that you keep him in your prayers. It would mean a lot 🙂
As for these cookies, they are one of my favorites. I adore mint flavor and chocolate chip cookies, so the two combined is heaven to me. This recipe is SO easy. Another reason I love them so much. Give them a try, you’ll probably love them, too 🙂
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
6-8 drops green food color
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, mint extract, egg and food coloring until a soft dough forms. Stir in the creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chips.
Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop by spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet, placing 2 inches apart.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
