Flat, flat cookies. They drive me crazy, and these little chocolate mint morsels are no exception. They’re not a bad cookie – very chocolate-y and intensely minty. If you don’t like mint, you can leave it out and add nuts or another flavor.
These are a make-ahead sort of cookie. Like most cookie doughs, it benefits from some time chilling in the refrigerator. In my case, it was in there for a couple of days. I had other things on my plate: the annual Netflix Waffle Day was last week, and my coworker and I were busy making puff pastry (16 pounds) and frangipane (6 quarts, and yes, we waffled puff pastry!).
After waffle day was over, the cookies bake off in just 10 minutes. The dough is just as quick and easy to make, too, but I’m not sure this is a recipe I’ll revisit.
