MINT(PUDINA)-CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES


This mint is not peppermint, or spear mint, it is the mint used for biriyanis etc.To make it clear only I had bracketed in

the title.

Well…the taste and colour was good and something different .As I baked this for the first time I made 3 varieties ,one

with almonds to top, another with cashews, and finally only chocolate chips.Confused to endorse rankings as all 3

tasted good.Soon to try the salt recipe and post.

Let’s get into today’s recipe….

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup mint leaves only

1 egg

100 gm butter (room temperature)

100 gm sugar (white.. if you want the look of green)

200 gm flour mixed with 1 tsp baking powder

a pinch of salt (if using unsalted butter)

chocolate chips

nuts of your choice

METHOD

Blend the sugar and mint well.

Beat the butter till creamy and add the mint mix.

Beat egg lightly and add to the butter mix.

Lightly fold in the flour and blend well.

You can add the chocolate chips finally or just press on each cookie before baking.

If you get a sticky dough, cover and leave in the fridge for some time.(20 minutes)

Divide into portions and place on a greased baking tray 1 inch apart.

Bake in 180C oven for 15-20 minutes and allow to cool.(cookies will turn crisp after it has cooled ).

NOTE:You could dip half of cookie in melted chocolate for a visual treat ..!

Would love to get your comments and experiences on how the recipe turned out for you ..Happy baking!
