Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookie Drops

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
This was my family's all-time favorite cookie for Christmas. They would search the grocery stores to try to find the mint chips for me when they became rare and are now extinct. They miss these cookies. I found, though, that you can put 1/4 teas. mint extract in a zip bag with semi-sweet chips for 24 hours and make your own mint chips, so I'll try again this year. The taste is not as good if you just put the mint extract in with the mixture. A few hints for those of you having problems: Do not use all the chips in the cookie mixture; add to the cookies on the sheet, and as needed in the dough. Flatten a little with a glass dipped in sugar for a less sweet taste, but barely flatten. The 1-inch size is okay, but a little bigger is easier to work with and will not over-bake as quickly. DO NOT over-bake; get them out of the oven and off the cookie sheet before they finish baking or they get hard as a rock; under-bake a little, if possible. I rate these a 5 for taste, but a 3 for difficulty. Keep a constant watch while baking.
