If you like Andes Mints or Mint Choc. Chip Ice Cream You'll love these! In fact Andes Mints makes their own mint baking chips - which I used and highly recommend (found next to the toffee bits and M&M's in your grocery store). I don't think you need 2c of them though - somewhere between 1 to 1 1/2 cup should be fine (start w/ one cup and add more to taste and texture). However I did use the full two cups and found these cookies extremely minty which doesn't make them bad...I'll just cut back next time. However when I pulled them out of the oven these cookies had a uncooked (whitish/green tint) look to them. I was worried...who would eat these? They don't even look cooked. Then I got an idea I used on another cookie - I melted some chocolate almond bark (just a couple sqaures of it) and with my spoon lightly drizzled chocolate criss-crossing over the top. Not only did they look fabulous but tasted great. Any true choc. mint lover can appreciate these cookies. Even my boyfriend who isn't so fond of chocolate mint had his share over the holidays. I'll make these again and again...using my changes or additions. Thanks a ton Clare! Read More

This recipe sounded great because we really wanted cookies and didn't have enough butter left. The dough tasted a little boring but I figured that was just me being used to butter taste. I ended up having to bake these for almost twenty minutes to get them to a "done" apppearance and taste. They didn't make a cookie shape at all just stayed how I baked them. Even with a sugar coating these cookies tasted like boring bread with random chocolate chips. As another review said it was like the dough was a holder for the chips. I will not be making this recipe again. Read More

These are so good--and healthier without the butter! Instead of mint chocolate chips (which I couldn't find) I used regular choc. chips with a few drops of McCormick's Mint Extract. mmmmmmmmm! My coworkers love these! Read More

I've made this recipe for cookie exchanges for years. I prefer making the recipe with butter instead of oil and I roll the dough into balls and coat them lightly with sugar before baking. The resulting cookie is delicious and goes really well with a cup of coffee. Read More

These are soo delicious! They smell great when they are baking the whole house had a chocolaty minty smell. I had never made cookies with oil before and was a bit skeptical especially because the batter seemed kind of liquid when it was all together. I chilled it for a little while and then baked for 10 minutes. I agree with the previous reviewer who felt these were very light. Mine were perfectly done and they were very light. I did not dust them with sugar before baking it's the only thing I changed about the recipe. I absolutely loved these and they will be added to my recipe box permanently. Thanks for an awesome recipe Clare! Read More

Not a big hit. The oil made the dough really greasy and I found it hard to keep the chips in the dough. Not bad just not great. Read More
