Mint cookies - YUM :)
I didn't post yesterday because I was so dang tired! I mean, I slept horribly the night before last, and I would guess I woke up 10 times, at the very least, from nightmares. I had the worst feeling of intense dread all night long. It was horrible! So today, I bring you gooey sweetness in the form of cookies! I make these cookies A LOT. I base my recipe off this recipe from Betty Crocker.
Package of Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
Bag of Toll House dark chocolate and mint morsels
Stick of butter, softened
1/4 tsp of mint extract
6 drops of green food coloring
First thing, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the cookie mix, extract, butter, egg and food coloring.
Once that is mixed into a soft dough, add the bag of chips...
I know some people are put off by the color. but to me, it just makes them seem more minty to me.
After it's all mixed and nice, use a cookie scoop (and I'll be darned if mine didn't BREAK while I was making these), and put a scoop (or about a teaspoon) of dough down on the cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes...but watch closely! You want the cookie to be done, but not brown on the bottoms. I have an issue with them. A lot. I need to work on getting my cookie dough balls in better positions, so that they bake more evenly. I get some browned bottoms and gooey middles sometimes :)
What do you think? Will you guys try these? Would you like to see more recipe/cooking posts? I think these may be popping up every once in a while! :)
