Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
While looking through some of Bunny's recipe collection, I came across this yummy little cookie. Bunny had a knack for picking out tasty recipes...especially for sweet treats.
These cookies are wonderful. You all know my fondness for the chocolate-mint combination*.
The cyclist said they remind him of starlight mint ice cream.
Bunny's Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4 cup shortening
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
1 T milk
1 T vanilla
2 cups flour
1 t salt
3/4 t baking soda
1 cup mint chips
1 cup chocolate chips
Combine shortening and brown sugar in a large bowl (I used a wooden spoon for the entire process). Add milk, vanilla and egg. Stir well. Add flour, salt and soda. Combine. Stir in both chips.
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes on greased cookie sheets. I used a #40 cookie scoop (holds a generous tablespoon of dough), but split each scoop into two cookies. The recipe made about 4 1/2 dozen cookies that way.
*Almost as good as chocolate and peanut butter!
