Chewy like a cookie, gooey like a brownie, this cookie gives you the best of both. The dough is soft, but slips off the cookie scoop easily and bakes into perfectly shaped rounds. I won’t dock it a star for this minor criticism, but I chose to omit the peppermint extract, replacing it with extra vanilla. I wanted a pure chocolate cookie dough and I figured there would be ample peppermint flavor from the chips (I used Andes). I was right. This was just the right balance of chocolate and peppermint without the peppermint extract and I believe it would have been peppermint overkill had I included it. I also think it would have compromised the rich chocolate flavor but that, however, might just be purely subjective.
