I have been going nuts over these tasty little bites for a while now. I LOVE mint in almost any form, and I love cookies—so this is the best of both worlds. This cookie recipe is also a little different than your standard because I tend to like a cakier cookie, one that has body and is moist. Not a huge fan of the flat______________cookie… boring!! (Keep in mind this is totally just my opinion—nothing to be added to the rules of cookie book!)
Mint Black & White Cookies
3 cups of AP (all purpose) flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp. mint extract
2 large eggs
1/3 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together and set aside. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar in an electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add sour cream and extract; mix well. Gradually add the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips. Spoon a rounded table spoon onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Yields approximately 4 dozen cookies.
If you love chocolate and you love mint, you have to try these puppies out. Let me know what you think!!
