Great for holiday baking. St Patrick’s Day, or just anytime during the year that you’re craving homemade cookies.

These are seriously some of the most flavorful cookies that you’ll ever make! (I double up the recipe because the kids eat them so quickly!)

The mint chocolate flavoring combined with the rest of the ingredients truly does create the perfect cookie flavor.

Once you make these cookies once, you’re going to want to find out how quickly you can get the next batch in the oven. Trust me, I’ve been there many, many times.

Once you preheat the oven to 350 degrees, the fun of cooking baking has started! It’s just so relaxing to make the flour mixture, add the baking chips, and make the dough balls to put on the baking mat to bake. Baking in the kitchen is one of the most relaxing activities that I love to do.

My boys love when I bake as well because they get to enjoy the flavors! They get a little impatient with the whole “cooling completely” part of the cookie recipe but I don’t want them to burn their mouths!

What is the easiest way to soften butter for baking cookies?

To get the butter smooth and creamy, you just need to get it to room temperature. That way it’ll cream up nice and easily when you’re using the stand mixer or electric mixer to make the dough.

How do I add even more mint flavoring to my cookies?

If you want more mint than what the cookies have, you can always add in some baking peppermint extract as well.

A few drops will really go a long way in getting more mint flavor!

How do I freeze baked cookies?

There’s nothing like a fresh batch of homemade cookies, but sometimes you might find yourself with more than you can eat. What’s the solution? Freeze them!

But how do you properly freeze baked cookies to maintain their original texture and taste? Firstly, you’ll want to make sure your cookies are completely cooled down before storing them.

Once cooled, individually wrap each cookie in plastic wrap or aluminum foil.

Then, place them into an airtight container or freezer bag and label them with the date.

When you’re ready to enjoy them again, simply thaw them out at room temperature.

With this simple method, you can enjoy your favorite cookies whenever you want without worrying about them going stale!

How do I soften stale cookies?

There are a few simple ways to soften up those less-than-fresh treats. One method is to place the cookies in a plastic bag with a slice of fresh bread or an apple overnight.

The moisture from the bread or apple will transfer to the cookies, making them softer.

Another option is to pop them in the microwave for a few seconds with a damp paper towel on top. Just be careful not to overdo it or the cookies will become too soggy.

With these quick fixes, you can make stale cookies enjoyable again.
