mint chocolate chip cookies



no fancy story here. i really like mint. and i really like chocolate. and i really like cookies. so, you know, i made something with all of those things.


2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons green food color (i use about two teaspoons. adjust to whatever shade of green you would like)
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips


preheat oven to 375°F. mix flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. in a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar in with electric mixer until light and fluffy. add eggs, food color and peppermint extract. mix well. gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until well mixed. stir in chocolate chips.

drop by heaping tablespoons about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. remove to wire racks. cool completely.
