St. Patrick’s Day is coming, and I wanted to make something fun, festive and green. So, I decided to make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies, which is inspired by one of my favorite ice cream flavors, Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
These delicious cookies have a wonderful minty green color, a yummy minty flavor, and loaded with chocolate chips and Dove Mint & Dark Chocolate Swirl Promises. All the flavors and colors of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream in a cookie.
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
2 cups unbleached flour
1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
6 ounces Dove Mint-Dark Chocolate Promises (1 cup coarsely chopped)
In a stand mixer, cream together butter, caster sugar and brown sugar on medium speed for 5 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add eggs and peppermint; mix until thoroughly blended and creamy. In a small bowl, whisk together both flours, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter-sugar mixture, blend completely on low speed. Stir in chocolate chips and coarsely chopped Dove Promises.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Drop on a parchment-lined baking sheet 2″ apart, using a #40 cookie scoop (disher), or 1-1/2 Tbsps. Bake at 375°F for 9-11 minutes. Remove cookies, with parchment, from baking sheet onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely.
