Fresh Mint & Chocolate Chip Cookies~

I've baked these cookies a couple of times before.. and have been meaning to post the recipe.. I baked these cookies again tonight whilst waiting for the Formula 1 to restart... so thought I'd finally share the recipe with you all..
I love that they use fresh mint.. 
They also aren't overly sweet.. but still ridiculously moreish! 
So you can eat loads and not feel icky.. WIN!!
 The original source of this recipe comes from eatpress and can be found by clicking the linky.. 
What you need: (for 12 -15 cookies)
1/2 c butter, room temperature
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 c caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 c milk chocolate chips (or any kind you prefer)
1/4 c coarsely chopped fresh mint leaves - I probably use about half a cup coz I like it minty!

What to do:
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (375ºF). 
Cream the butter and sugars. 
Add egg and vanilla slowly. 
Sift together flour, salt and baking soda and then add to the egg mix and beat until just combined. Pop in the chocolate chips and chopped mint and mix together.
Form the dough into 5cm (2 inch) balls. 
Place on prepared baking sheet and bake until golden, about 9 minutes for chewy and 12 for crunchy. 
Cool on rack. Store in airtight container. (If you don't eat them all!)  
Delicious hot out of the oven or cold..
Serve with a glass of milk!
Happy Nomming!!

  3. I definitely will have to try these... especially since that husband of mine loves mint and I've only made him a minty treat once-- and it was for our wedding so he only got to eat one! Haha, poor hubby!
