  • Combine butter, white sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in eggs. Stir in vanilla extract and peppermint extract. Dissolve baking soda in hot water and mix into the batter.

  • Combine flour, salt, and cream of tartar in a separate bowl. Add to the batter gradually; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.

  • Drop spoonfuls of batter onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 1 minute; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Used tsp fresh lemon juice as I didn't have cream of tarter, twice the color first batch and 5 drops more second batch (I was making them to appeal to a 4 year old), 3/4 cup each of sugars, and 1 cup each of Bailey's Irish cream morsels semi bitter sweet chocolate . Cooked 13' for slightly mounded tablespoon. It didn't say when to add color but I would add with extracts the next time. I would make again. Read More

10 minutes was definitely not long enough for mine. I baked for around 15 minutes until the edges were slightly brown. When I tried taking them out at 10 minutes they were very under done. Baking time aside these were delicious. I used mini chocolate chips. I will definitely make these again. Read More
