Minty Greens!


Minty Greens
1/3 cup butter
1 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon mint extract
1 teaspoon green food coloring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 12 ounce package dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375
Mix butter and shortening.  Add sugars, eggs, mint extract, green food coloring, and vanilla. 
In a separate bowl,  blend flour, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture.   Beat until well blended
Add dark chocolate chips and stir to combine.  I added a secret ingredient, 1/2 a cup of the chocolate mint hot chocolate from William Sonoma. It is just bittersweet chocolate flakes, flavored with mint. I had some I needed to use and it added freckles to the cookies. 
Using the medium scoop, scoop out onto parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake for 12 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.
Makes 4 dozen cookies.
