Cooking With Scooter

Creme de Menthe/Chocolate Chip Cookies

By virtue of an accident (self-rising flour) and a lack of a bag of chocolate chips (only half a bag of creme de menthe and half a bag of chocolate chips), I bring you a cookie that turned out pretty damn well.

1/2 c. butter (salted) - just one stick, so better for you than chocolate chip cookies which generally require two sticks for the same size batch
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. white granulated sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
2 t. vanilla extract
2 eggs


2 2/3 c. self-rising flour (I used Gold Medal self-rising specialty flour)

It'll get too thick and clumpy to be good cookie dough, so add some cold water a teaspoon or two at a time until it just quits being little clumps and becomes dry, but mixed cookie dough.

Add 1/2 bag of creme de menthe bits (I used Andes)
Add 1/2 bag of chocolate chips (I used Nestle semi-sweet morsels)

Mix in the chips.

Bake at 350 degrees on a non-stick pan (I use a stoneware pan) for about 12 minutes. Cook for a few more if not browning (move to a higher rack if necessary) until a respectable brown on top. Cool and eat. Probably really good with ice cream.

Would like to try them, but as you know I have not touched sugar, flower, choclate etc for over 2 years. I would probably get sick if I tried to eat one.
