Mint Choc Chip Cookies

Mint Choc Chip Cookies

Cookies are a must have in our house. There is normally always a lot of cookies in our jar in the kitchen. We don’t buy biscuits/cookies from the supermarket anymore. Most biscuits sold in the UK are made with refined sugar and contain ingredients that I’m not sure I want myself or my family to eat. Therefore I love to bake my own.

Now I realise that many people will tell me they don’t have the time to make their own biscuits. I understand but I do find making my biscuits really easy. Plus I do think homemade cookies are so much tastier than shop brought. I also really enjoy testing different flavours in my biscuits.

It was a rainy day in the UK and I was stood at the fridge thinking about flavours for a new cookies. Then I noticed the mint and that was it. I had chocolate chips in the cupboard so I decided to put the two together in a biscuit. Chocolate and mint are a brilliant combination and they really worked well in this cookie.

Mint Choc Chip Cookies

Mint Choc Chip Cookies were very well received by my husband Howard and son Ted. They both loved this biscuit and so did I. These biscuits will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container. You could make these as a gift for a friend or relative. That’s if you don’t want to eat them all to yourself. Yes I think they are that delicious. However you decide to eat these cookies, as always, please enjoy! Thank you xxx
