My husband Arthur is a huge Mint fan.
He eats a box of “After Eight” (chocolate filled with mint) in 2 hours, he stole the mint leaves of my mojitos, and wants to add mint to every single savory recipe I do!
Oh God he is a nightmare, the worst part is that I’m not a mint fan! So, this week was a big deal for him, it was his graduation ceremony and he received a “mention très honorable” that is very important in France.
Certainly, I was really proud of my other half and I wanted to surprise him and reward his effort, so when less expected I started to do mint cookies when he was busy doing other stuff!
Oh Dear, when he smelled the mint scent coming out from the oven, he ran to see what I was doing! Surpriseeee face!
He was so happy, and stayed in front of the oven until the first batch came out!
He didn’t even wait until the cookies cooled down.
Note: This mint cookies are “strong” in flavor so eat one or two! Not the 15 at one time!
Fresh Mint-Chocolate Chips Cookies
(makes 15) recipe inspired by: Aurelie from Mes envies et Délices
- 50 mint leaves (around)
- 1 egg
- 100 g of sugar
- 100 g of Butter
- 150 g of all purpose Flour
- 100 g dark chocolate chips
Add the egg to the mixture and whisk. Cut the butter in dices and add it little by little to the mixture.
Once the dough is uniform, incorporate the flour in 2 times.
Mix with a spatula till well incorporated and add the chocolate chips.
Mix to distribute evenly.
Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat the oven at 180°C.
Take out the dough from the fridge. With a tablespoon, start to form medium size dough balls and place them on the baking tray.
Bake for 12-15 minutes (depending the oven) or until you see the edges, turn to a light brown.
