White Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies

White Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies by BakingdomI alway love the last couple of weeks of February and the first couple of weeks of March. My birthday is towards the end of February, and shortly into March, the Hubster and I celebrate our wedding anniversary. And actually, not too much later, in April, it’s his birthday! It’s just a really happy, celebratory time around our house, and he always takes some time off of work.

The last two weeks, we’ve just been hanging out together, relaxing, cooking and baking. It’s been the best! :)

One of the treats I baked up this past week had yummy white chocolate and plenty of peppermint, and I decided that with a bit of rainbow sprinkles, they’d be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day.

White Chocolate Mint Cookies by BakingdomThese are great, chewy peppermint cookies, and the white chocolate is a perfect compliment to the minty flavor.

White Chocolate Chip Mint Rainbow Cookies by BakingdomThese would be great at Christmastime with some pretty red and green sprinkles, too.

And if you get the chance, serve these bad boys up with some mint chocolate chip ice cream on your next warm day. Trust me on that. ;)

Enjoy!

Recipe type: Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: about 18 large cookies
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter,
  • melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1½ cups white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat baking mats.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, combine the butter and sugars and mix well. Stir in the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Sprinkle about half of the flour mixture on top and mix until just combined. Add the other half of the flour mixture and mix well. Stir in the chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  4. Using a small (about 1½ tablespoons) scoop, or a regular tablespoon, scoop out two heaping tablespoonfuls of batter (a total of about 3 tablespoons). Put the 2 scoops together and place on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 3 to 4 inches between each cookie.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until dark golden brown at the edges and lighter brown in the center. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.

    Fabulous! I’ve never considered a mint flavored cookie but the more I think about it, especially with white chocolate, the more I love it. I’m sure my coworkers would love these too! Can’t wait to try them. Yay for the pretty sprinkles as well! PS – Happy Birthday(s) and Anniversary to you and your husband! I love that he takes time off of work to celebrate! So thoughtful.
