How to Make Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line one or more baking sheets with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl, then beat on medium for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and yolk, peppermint extract, and food coloring.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Add to the wet ingredients and combine until the flour is not quite incorporated.
  5. Divide chocolate chips in 2 piles. From 1 pile, reserve 1/3 cup. Add the rest of the pile to the dough.
  6. Chop the other half coarsely, with a knife or in a food processor.
  7. Add the chopped chocolate to the dough, and mix until just combined.
  8. Cover the dough and refrigerate for about an hour, if desired.
  9. Use a 2-inch cookie scoop to form balls of dough and drop them on the cookie sheet. These are very large cookies, I only did 6-8 cookies per pan.
  10. Bake at 350 for about 8-10 minutes, or until BARELY starting to brown on the edges. The centers should mostly be not-shiny when you take them out, but a little shine is okay.
  11. With the 1/3 cup whole chips that you reserved, push them into the baked cookies immediately after taking them out of the oven. This will melt them slightly and make them ooey gooey.
  12. Let cool 5 minutes on the pan, then remove to a cooling rack.
