I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Mint Brownie Batter Cookies

Chewy and chocolatey with a hint of mint.

1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 oz baking chocolate, melted
3 large eggs, at room temperature
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsps baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp mint extract (or 2 tsps mint and skip the vanilla if you like your cookies mintier!)
1 cup mini white chocolate chips (plus a few extra to top)
1 or 2 candy canes crushed (optional)

Beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar and melted baking chocolate together until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time.
Then sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together and add to the wet ingredients. Add the extract of your choice and fold in the white chocolate chips and crushed candy cane. 

Scoop batter using a small cookie scoop (1 - 1 1/2") onto parchment lined baking sheets 2" apart. Stick a couple of chocolate chips on top.
And bake at 350F for 12-15 minutes.
Makes 82 bite sized cookies
Store in airtight containers.
