A minty green twist on the traditional chocolate-chip cookie.
1 pouch (1 pound, 1/2 ounce) 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 cup crème de menthe baking chips
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
Heat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, stir the cookie mix, butter, extract, food color, and egg until a soft dough forms. Stir in the crème de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.
Using a small cookie scoop or teaspoon, drop the dough two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake eight to 10 minutes or until set. Cool three minutes; remove from the cookie sheet to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely. Store tightly covered at room temperature.
