Fresh Mint-Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these to take to church. I had to taste a piece just to make sure they were o.k. to take. They are delicious. The fresh mint is the special ingredient. I will be making these again. It comes from Betty Crocker's Cookie Book.
1 1/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 Tablespoon finely chopped mint leaves
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (10oz) min-chocolate chips (1 1/2 cups)
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat sugar, butter, mint leaves, and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 11 - 13 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1-2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
