Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe and picture from Betty Crocker

These would be a perfect treat for St. Patrick's Day!

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon mint extract
6 to 8 drops green food color
1 egg
1 cup creme de menthe baking chips
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract,
food color and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in creme de menthe
baking chips and chocolate chunks. Using small cookie scoop or
teaspoon, drop dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 3 minutes; remove from
cookie sheet to wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely.

What a lovely green color to match that delicious minty flavor. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.
