Day 10:  25 Days of Christmas – Cookie Style

 I love Chocolate and I also love mint, but having a dessert with the combination of the two isn’t a personal favorite for me.  However, I know there are lots of people who think otherwise.  That is why I still made these cookies.  I actually found this recipe on one of those tear off booklets at my local grocery store in the baking aisle.  These were super easy to make and were soft & chewy!  These were a favorite among many of the taste testers!

Tip #1:  Store cookies in an airtight container.  Do not mix these cookies with others in same container as the mint aroma could incorporate into other cookies.

Tip #2:  For an added touch, drizzle cooled cookies with melted white or dark chocolate.

Tip #3:  Did you ever wonder what the purpose of salt is in cookie / cake recipes?  The main reason is to enhance the flavor of the other ingredients.  It will provide a balance to the sweetness of batter.  It also strengthens the dough by tightening the gluten and prolongs shelf life!
