Soft-Baked Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi everyone!  Zesty is having quite the busy week, so it’s me Sally again with another killer cookie recipe.  It’s true, I am a cookie monster. ;)

I’ve been on a mission for a while trying ot find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.  The recipe I can bake again and again for years!  I’ve lost sleep, I’ve burnt dough, I’ve tested and retested and retested… and retested countless times. I finally found a winner and today… I’m bringing mint to the table.

Mint Chocolate Chip.  Is there really anything better?

Today’s cookies have a little secret.  They are made with cornstarch! Yes, cornstarch.  It is the secret ingredient that gives the cookies and unbelievable lift and thickness.  It also makes their texture SO soft and doughy. Because we all know the dough is the best part right?

Also contributing to their soft-baked quality is the amount of dark brown sugar.  I always like to use more brown sugar than white in my cookie recipes.  It gives the cookies a chewy texture, and less of a crisp. And for this recipe, I used DARK brown sugar.  Light vs dark brown sugar is mostly interchangeable in dessert recipes.  But I find that dark brown sugar gave these cookies a rich aroma and unique depth of flavor.

The mint chocolate chip morsels are a seasonal item – I found them in the baking aisle.  You could also make these with just regular chocolate chips or even with Andes Mint Chocolate chunks.  I love mint & chocolate together, especially this time of year!

And the best part? It is the easiest recipe ever. Quick, fool-proof, and straightforward!  You’ll use this basic dough recipe over and over and over again.  I love recipes like that!

What are you waiting for?  Make these now!
