Mint chocolate chip cookies remix

For Mother’s Day I got this book from the boys:

Cookie_LoveIt has terrific cookie recipes (the snickerdoodle is hands down my boys’ favorite of the book), but it also has great tips for creating a better cookie. With that in mind I applied several of the tips to one of my classic cookie recipes and thought I would share!

Mint chocolate chip cookiesMint Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (Ghiradelli’s is our favorite)
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Cut butter into tablespoon slices and place in the bottom of the mixer. Set your egg out on the counter. Do this first then prep the rest of your ingredients
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Set aside.
  4. Crack egg into a small cup and whisk with vanilla.
  5. On medium speed cream butter for about three minutes.
  6. Add sugars to butter and mix until light and fluffy about 3-4 minutes.
  7. Scrape down the sides and then add in the egg mixture. Mix until it resembles cottage cheese (so slightly lumpy, but well mixed.
  8. Add all of the flour mixture to the bowl. Mix just a little by hand (so it doesn’t puff out when you start the mixer), and then mix on low speed only until barely blended.
  9. Stir in mint chocolate chips.
  10. Bake for seven minutes, then rotate the pan 180 degrees and bake for two additional minutes. Let cool on the pan for 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  11. Will keep in an air tight container at room temperature for 3-5 days. In our house they rarely last that long.

As I stated, it’s not a huge difference from my original recipe, but the method has some additional steps. If you enjoy baking (even just at the holidays) I would highly recommend the book!
