Merry Mondays - MINT

Two of my blogging friends are helping us to enjoy the holidays even more with Merry Mondays. The ingredient for this Monday is MINT! Stay tuned for our next two Mondays!

I posted this recipe a couple of weeks ago but it I love it so much, thought I would share it again.

I have another great mint recipe. I got this cookie recipe from a dear friend that moved from Omaha - I just don't like it when friends move away. Jill is a great cook - and so creative. Jill is a great wife, mom and friend!

Jill's Mint Cookies

3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. water
12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
Andes mints

Microwave butter, sugar and water until melted; add chocolate chips; cook 5-10 minutes. Mix at high speed adding eggs; Mix well and add dry ingredients; Chill for one hour and form into balls; Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. After taking cookies from oven, top with an Andes mint, allow to melt and swirl with a knife.
