If you are looking for a great cookie for St. Patrick’s Day, you are going to want to try this Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe! They are made very much like a traditional chocolate chip cookie, you just add some green food coloring and use Dark Chocolate and Mint Baking Chips to give you all the flavor that you need!
If you can’t find the Dark Chocolate and Mint Baking Chips aat your local store, there is a very simple solution! Just replace the vanilla extract with mint extract (NOT peppermint extract) and use regular chocolate chips! You will need to adjust the amount of mint extract to your taste, so start slow replacing the vanilla, taste a little bit of the dough and then add more as you need/want it (yes – even though it has raw eggs in it. I have been eating raw cookie dough for more than 40 years and while I know that there is a chance of salmonella from eating raw eggs, but I am willing to take that chance!).
As usual, I STRONGLY suggest that you use parchment paper when you bake these cookies. Not only does it make clean-up a breeze, but it prevents the cookies from spreading too much and they retain that nice puffy shape!
