Here’s a minty surprise in a firm, sweet cookie. I’m disappointed some years when I can’t find mint chocolate chips, but butterscotch chips (or Hershey Special Dark chips) make a tasty replacement.
1 C. sugar
3/4 C. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 C. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 10-oz. bag of mint chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350º. In the mixer bowl, blend the sugar with the oil, eggs, and vanilla. Add in the flour and baking powder, then stir in the chips. Shape rounded spoonfuls into balls and roll in the extra sugar. Place balls on cookie sheets that have been covered with parchment paper and bake 8-10 minutes. Cool for a minute on the pan before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. About 5 dozen.
