Super mint cookies

Confession time…again. Soon my invisible internet friends, you are going to know all the inner workings of my crazy. Yup, come along as I continue to take my oddities out for a spin for us to poke fun at. But this time, it’s really a chance for you to sympathize with Himself. Each and every single time I paint my nails, I waive them in front of Himself’s face for him to admire. Every. Single. Time. I only realized this lately, but to his credit, he dutifully admires them. Every. Single. Time. And that is why I cheerfully make all the things with mint in them. He is crazy for it, and I for him, so mint, mint, mint it is.

And that’s just how these cookies came about. Wandering through the grocery store, I spied mint chips on sale. Of course I snatched those goodies up, cookies are always a big ol’ hit, right? But then when I got home I realized I didn’t just want to make your standard cookie base and add mint chips. So, I turned to my Biggest Book of Cookies. Don’t laugh, that’s a real thing. With a little tweaking, these super mint cookies were born. The powdered sugar makes these babies light and airy. So you can eat eight of them. Wait, no that’s not true, but might be an argument Himself gave me when going back for more.

If you’re looking to add to your holiday cookie repertoire (like I am…constantly), just add a few drops of green food coloring before mixing in the chips, and voila! Instant holiday goodness.

Enjoy!
