On my day off this week, I decided to bake some festive holiday cookies. If you like mint and chocolate, these are for you! I saw several versions of this recipe online and kind of manipulated it to fit my own preferences.
Your eyes are not deceiving you- they definitely have a green tint!
Here's what you need:
1 package of sugar cookie mix (I used Betty Crocker)
1 stick of butter, softened
3 drops green food coloring
1/4 tsp. mint extract
1 cup (approx.) of Andes mint candies chopped
Pre-heat oven to 375. Mix first 5 ingredients, then add in mints. Place spoonfuls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes.
These were ready sooner than I expected. So, watch them or they will burn ;)
I ended up eating way too many straight out of the oven and made Mark take the rest to work. The recipe made several dozen small cookies.
