Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies during a Christmas baking escapade. They are so good!

Confession: I do NOT love cookies. These were amazing though. I was pretty excited about them.
They came out in perfectly round looking cookies which was a huge win for me!
My 6 year old walked in and asked if I was baking ice cream. These little beauties looked just like scoops of mint chip ice cream.

  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 1½ c. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ tsp. peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used Mexican vanilla)
  • a few drops of green green food coloring (color to your liking)
  • 3 c. flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cream of tarter
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 10 oz. bag Nestle dark chocolate chips mixed with mint chips 
  1. Cream butter and sugar for about three minutes. It should be fluffy.
  2. Add eggs, green food coloring and peppermint extract. Cream for another 2-3 minutes.
  3. Measure dry ingredients in a separate bowl or sifter. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix until combined.
  4. Add mint and chocolate chips. Gently stir to until incorporated.
  5. Spray cookie sheet. Drop cookies using a 2 Tablespoon size cookie scoop.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Watch for the cookies to begin cracking. Let cool on baking sheet for a few minutes. Transfer to cookie rack and finish cooling.
