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
1 egg
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!

These look delicious. I love the specks of green mintiness dotted among the chips. The cookies look wonderfully thick and chewy

I think you may be trying to kill off all of us no-chocolate eaters...but I will make these bad boys with mint and salute you!

So the "wooden spoon" comment. Is that a suggestion or just you bragging?

I was alluding to the fact that you didn't need to haul out your mixer, or dirty too many dishes.

But I AM pretty strong.

These look great! Were the mint chips easy to find? I haven't been able to find them in my regular grocery store. I think I will have to try some chopped Andes mints. These cookies are too good not to try!

Cookie Sleuth,
I like the "Guittard Green Mint Chips". I find them in my local supermarket. You can order them online as well. I think the chopped Andes mints would be perfect though. That would take care of the chocolate and the mint!

Just made these. Yummie. But I also added about 3/4 tsp. peppermint. Tasted very festive.
