Hello all! It really has been a while since my latest blog post but with the summer here, we are really busy with the girls.
Since we have come back from our amazing vacation, I started to grow my own little herbal garden and of course that includes fresh mint.
Besides incorporating the fresh mint into my water, I thought I could also mix it into my girls chocolate chip cookies. I must say, they turned out delicious! I hope you enjoy this simple but very delicious recipe!
You will need:
- 1/4 cup of fresh mint, chopped
- 1/2 stick of butter, that is 1/4 of our standard butter rectangle
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 1/2 cup of plain flour
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp of sea salt, coarse
- 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips, or a mix of both
- Cut up the fresh mint.
- Over low heat, in a small saucepan, melt the buttet and add the fresh mint.
- Stir it until the butter is melted and the fresh mint becomes soft, about 4 minutes.
- Take it off the heat, and strain the butter into a bowl.
- Add the butter and sugar in a stand alone mixer and mix on low for about 5 minutes.
- Then add the egg and continue to mix for another two minutes.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda and sea salt and mix together.
- Next add the flour mixture into the butter mixture, little at a time and continue mixing until you get a dough like mixture.
- Once that is done, add the chocolate chips and fold them into the dough.
- Preheat the oven to 350 F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Next, scoop up 1 tbsp of cookie dough onto the sheet while leaving about an inch in between every cookie.
- Bake for about 10 minutes, turning the tray half way.
- Cool on the rack for about 10 minutes before serving.
