Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free) are super tasty. Don’t you just love the combination of mint and chocolate? And you can whip these up in 20 minutes.
Did you know that February 19 is Chocolate Mint Day? Who knew? It’s one of my favorite flavor combinations. If you like that combo, you’re gonna love these Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies. Gluten free baked goods can be a little grainy, but these cookies were super and it’s likely no one will be able to tell they are gluten free. If you underbake cookies just a bit, they will be chewy (which is the way I like them).
Celebrate this special day with me. I’ve been hungry for cookies lately. Well, when am I not hungry for cookies? Cookies are my favorite dessert. Just call me Cookie Monster.
Anyway, I looked in the cupboard and found a 10-ounce package of Andes Creme de Menthe Baking Chips and decided to make some gluten-free cookies. And I’m glad I did! They are amazing. Great texture. Bursting with flavor.
What You Need
As with most cookie recipes, you will need measuring cups and spoons, a bowl, an electric mixer (or you can struggle making it by hand), and cookie sheets. Save yourself some trouble and get a silicone baking sheet to put on top of your cookie sheet. The clean up is a breeze. And, of course, you need a good cuppa coffee, right?
