Conner man is famous around these parts…..meaning our little abode . For what? For Conner’s cookies of course :-)!
Conner loves making (helping make) cookies – he is especially good at scooping them out. Which means we get cookies of all shapes and sizes. It is a favorite activity for him and I. And I think it is good that he is learning some basic cooking techniques & fractions. Here is the latest recipe that we made, per his request to use the mint chocolate chips!
Double Chocolate Mint Cookies
- 2/3 cup butter, softened (I used 1/3 c. butter, 1/3 c. butter flavored shortening)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 2/3 cups mint chocolate chips
- Heat oven to 350°F
- Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in mint chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 8 to 9 minutes or just until set; do not overbake. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.
