Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

If I had a dollar for every cookie I’ve made….that would be awesome, lol! You have to give my latest recipe a try. I found those adorable mini Hershey Kissses in the baking isle and knew they would make an awesome cookie. I also added a touch of peppermint for the perfect festive touch.

I always love adding vanilla instant pudding mix  to my cookie dough. You’ll love the texture it brings the cookies. Please note, you can leave this out if you don’t have it on hand 🙂

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.
