Yeah, I didn’t think all of my posts through and I’m posting a recipe for Christmas cookies….the day after Christmas. These are actually good any time, but with the beautiful green mint chips they looks so festive on Christmas. I suppose you could make these on St. Patrick’s day as well.
This recipe came from the back of Guittard green mint chips bag.
Preheat the oven to 350* F. In top of a double broiler over low heat, melt 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butter. I don’t have a double broiler, so I use a bowl over a saucepan. It works great!
Stir the chocolate constantly until smooth. Set aside to cool. In a small bowl combine 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/8 tsp salt; set aside.
In a large bowl beat 3 large eggs, 1/2 cup sugar, and 2 tsp vanilla until light.
Blend in the melted (and cooled) chocolate. Then add your dry ingredients.
Stir in the mint chips and then chill in the fridge for 10-15 minutes.
Your cookie dough will look really wet and sticky and you will be tempted to add more flour. Don’t do it! 🙂 It’s supposed to be that sticky. Bake for 8-10 minutes; cookies will be soft in the middle and will harden as they cool. I found 9 minutes to be perfect for me and my oven.
These cookies are amazing right out of the oven. They are so chocolatey and gooey and minty. And they are pretty!
