Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Course: Desserts
Keyword: Gluten Free
Author: Denise

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature⁣
  • 1 cup granulated sugar⁣
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar⁣
  • 2 eggs room temperature ⁣
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract⁣
  • 2 1/2 cups flour gluten free blend⁣ if desired
  • 1 tsp baking soda⁣
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt⁣
  • 12 oz milk chocolate chips⁣ Guittard are my fav!, reserve 2 Tbsp for garnish
  • 4.5 oz Andes mints roughly chopped, reserve 2 Tbsp for garnish
  • Finishing salt

Instructions

  • Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat together butter and sugars. Mixture should be smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, whisking to combine. Add vanilla extract and combine.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Slowly add dry mixture to wet, whisking to combine. Be careful not to overmix.
  • Add chocolate chips and chopped mint chocolate candy. Mix into batter.
  • Scoop batter into large balls and place on cookie sheet. Place close together since batter will be refrigerated before being baked. Once batter is formed into balls, press extra chocolate chips and mint chocolate candy onto top. Sprinkle with finishing salt (I love Maldon!)
  • Refrigerate at least 3 hours or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Space out batter balls on baking sheet lined with parchment. If making large cookies, roughly 6 will fit on one standard sized baking sheet. Don’t overcrowd or cookies will bleed together given their size.
  • Bake 14-16 minutes, turning baking sheet halfway through. Once edges are golden brown, remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. Enjoy!
