I've found my alternative to Thin Mints when the Girl Scouts aren't selling them! Read More

I was hoping these would be like those my Grandma used to make ahead and freeze. They were not. We tripled the peppermint extract and did half semi-sweet and half milk chocolate chips. They were boring. Not very minty not very chocolatey. Definitely won't make again... Read More

These were wonderful! Better than Girl Scout cookies. The amount of mint was just perfect not too much not too little. The dough did seem a little too soft so I added another 1/2 of flour or enough so that the dough had the consistency of chocolate chip cookie dough. I used a 1 inch scoop which made perfect round cookies (About sixty of them) and they were light buttery and crisp on the edges while still managing to be chewy on the inside. They had the perfect thickness- not too flat. Perfection!!! Read More

These cookies were good! I love chocolate & mint. I don't like my cookies flat though so I added 1/4 to 1/2 cup more flour. Read More
