Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

My sister’s birthday was on 12/12/12. A while back she was on pinterest and saw this recipe and emailed it to me. She wrote “Mmmmm, these look good. We should make them.” So I made them for her on her birthday. They are really good. Taste exactly as you would imagine…. mint and chocolate, the perfect combination!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 tsp mint extract
  • 8 drops green food coloring
  • 1 egg
  • 4.67 oz package Andes creme de menthe, cut in pieces
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, mint extract, food coloring, and egg until dough forms. Stir in creme de menthe pieces and chocolate chips.
  2. Use a cookie scoop and arrange 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool and enjoy!

Goblin Cookies

It’s almost Halloween. I saw a recipe on Pioneer Woman for monster cookies and thought they looked delicious. I’ve read that monster cookies are supposed to have peanut butter and you omit the flour. I altered the monster cookie recipe and changed the name to goblin cookies. All the little chips and M & M’s looks like spooky goblin eyes watching you!

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup quick cook oats
  • 1 cup regular oats
  • 1 cup M & M’s
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2-1/2 cups Rice Krispies

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream butter with sugars until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla and beat.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and kosher salt to bowl and mix till combined. Next add in oats, followed by M & M’s and chocolate chips.
  4. Add Rice Krispies at the very end, mixing until just combined, being careful not to over mix. 
  5. Use a cookie scoop to scoop heaping balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes, then allow to cool on a rack.

Malted Chocolate Chip Cookies

OMG, these are my favorite cookies. I was watching The Pioneer Woman one weekend morning and she made this recipe. It looked interesting, so we decided to give it a go. The malted milk powder really gives it a new flavor and makes them so yummy. It is impossible to eat less than three!  The only thing I found was using mini chocolate chips  rather than regular was they dispersed better throughout the cookie. They are thin, crisp, and chewy, the perfect combination.

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup golden brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 heaping cup malted milk powder
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • One 12-ounce bag mini milk chocolate chips
Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter, then add both sugars and cream until fluffy. Add the eggs and beat slightly, then add the vanilla and beat until combined. Add the malted milk powder and beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add to the butter mixture, beating gently until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and stir in gently.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) on an ungreased baking sheet, leaving plenty of space between the cookies (they spread out quite a bit). Bake for 9 to 11 minutes. The cookies will be very flat and very chewy. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan with a spatula.

You can also bake the cookies at 350 F convection for 7 to 8 minutes.
