I came across this recipe and thought "Finally! I don't have to search for the chocolate variety. I can just make them!" and decided to put my own twist on them with a mint buttercream frosting.
Whenever you see a copycat Lofthouse cookie recipe, you see 2 different ways to make them....some people chill the dough and roll them out and use a cookie cutter...and others use a large cookie scoop and then slightly flatten the ball. Both methods work very well but there is one problem with using the cookie cutter method.
If. like me, when you use a round cookie cutter, your natural instinct is to twist the cutter, you will want to stick to the "drop method". When you twist the cutter you end up sealing the edges and they don't puff up as much.
If you do end up doing the rolled version, make sure to use cocoa powder to dust your cutting board and rolling pin. Who wants a bunch of white powder hanging around on your chocolate cookies?
