Fresh Chocolate Mint Double Chip Cookies

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh chocolate mint leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or grease a baking sheet.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla slowly.
  3. Sift together flour, salt and baking soda and then add to the wet mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped mint and mix together until just combined.
  4. Form the dough into 2 inch balls. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden, about 9 minutes for chewy and 12 for crunchy. Cool on rack. Store in airtight container.

I got 20 cookies from this recipe. I got fresh chocolate mint in my basket from my CSA and I was trying to think of something I could make with the chocolate mint and I found this recipe from Eatpress. I adapted it a bit by adding the white chocolate chips, just because I love white chocolate chips in cookies=} and I thought they would taste good with the fresh mint. The mint flavor was there but not overpowering and went so well with the combination of the chocolate chips. These cookies were fantastically delicious and gone at the end of the evening! You will definitely have to give these cookies a try if you have access to fresh mint, if you don’t you can sub the fresh mint for mint extract but it will not be the same.
