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.
