Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these for a lesson on was teaching at church & I wish that I would've found the recipe sooner because I think they would be fantastic for St. Patrick's Day!
Just be careful on the amount of mint extract you use, I used 1/2 tsp and I almost thought it was too much for me, so next time I will use 1/4 tsp.
1 pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. mint extract
6-8 drops green food coloring
1 c. creme De menthe baking chips
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chunks
Mix cookie mix, butter, extract, food color and egg in bowl, until soft dough forms.
Stir in creme De menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.
Using small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Cool 3 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
