For my birthday some lovely friends gifted me with a bouquet of herbs from their garden, I know perfect gift idea isn't it! A large portion of it was mint & I love fresh mint. Grocery store fresh mint isn't the same variety that backyard mints usually are. This mint was strong, had a clean flavor, and smelled like summer.
Fresh Mint & White Chocolate Cookies
1 cup butter; room temp
1 cup brown sugar; lightly packed
2/3 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 cup mint; finely chopped
1 in a large bowl beat butter, brown sugar, sugar together 3-5 minutes
2 beat in eggs one at a time, then beat in vanilla
3 in another bowl mix flour, salt, and baking soda together, with the mixer on low add the flour mixture and mix until all is incorporated
4 by hand, stir in white chocolate chips & mint. Plop a heaping tbs full of cookie dough onto baking sheet and repeat until all dough is used. Place in fridge for 20 minutes
5 preheat oven to 350 degrees F and bake cookies for 10-15 minutes, tops should be lightly golden brown.
I'm right, I promise, you need to make these!
Also you could try these with chocolate chips but I really loved the balance that the white chocolate chips brought, it also made them feel less heavy in my opinion.
