Cookie update and giveaway


I made the cookies I posted about yesterday and they are absolutely delicious!
I didn't follow the recipe completely. I used 1 cup plus a heaping 3/4 cup flour, I dumped 8 squares of chocolate in a bowl and melted it in the microwave without chopping it, I used imitation vanilla and they turned out great.
You should be warned that after refrigerating the dough it gets really stiff and the dough balls are quite firm. When baked, the cookies have a slightly crisp exterior and a chewy interior.
If you like chocolate and mint, you will love these cookies!

Just a reminder to sign up here for the carving giveaway, if you haven't already. The drawing will be done on Sunday night.

I had to laugh at your comment this morning, for me....so, we both bark at the hole, huh? LOLOLOL

Did you know it's snowing on your page? You can keep it there all winter instead of on the ground outside.

Now, off to check out the cookie post.

Snow and cookies (live together in perfect harmony ;))

May I have a cookie ?

Have a sweet day.

Hootin' Anni [again] said...

PS....there are two sugars listed in the recipe...I'm assuming the smaller amount is confectioner's sugar?

Still have plans to make 'em.
