After a great weekend with friends, football and food I pondered the busy weeks ahead of me, there is so much going on and well, I admit – I feel a little overwhelmed. I know it’s just my OCDness that kicks and makes me feel this way, so I am going to make a very concerted effort to not stress about all the details and just enjoy every minute of this busy time in my life! And I am going to start enjoying this time by making cookies!!!!
Chocolate Mint Dream Cookies
(adapted from Nestlé)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large eggs
- 1 2/3 cups (10-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate & Mint Morsels (I could not find these so I chopped up a cup of Andes Candies and added 2/3 cup milk chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 325º and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream butter and sugars in stand mixer until well combined.
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
In another bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.
When well combined, stir in chocolate/mint pieces.
Scoop well rounded tablespoons of cookie mixture onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until cookies are set.
Cool on sheet for a few minutes then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
And so the cookie kick continues…….
