A Minty Treat

Grinch Cookies
A Twist on Sugar Cookies With a Hint of Mint



With just these few ingredients you are going to make a treat that will NOT make it to the cookie jar!

Since it's baking season, I have been searching the internet,
well, huh-hum, Pinteres,t and came across a simple recipe.
After tweaking it a bit, here is the result...

Ingredients
1 Pouch (1 lb 1.5oz) Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1 Stick of Butter room temperature (very important)
1/2 Teaspoon of Mint Extract
14(YES!) Drops of Green Food Coloring
1 Egg
1 Cup Andes Mint Chips or Mint M & M's
1 Cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips

Preheat Oven to 350
Combine all ingredients to make the dough


Fold in the Chips and Mints/M&Ms



Spoon onto Cookie Sheet
Bake 8-10 Minutes (Ovens vary so may take more/less time)


These Photos do not do the green color justice!
They are SUPER yummy right out of the oven!
I'm a Fan of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream and this cookie form!

Enjoy! 
If you Make Any Variations I Would Love to Hear!!

Such Fun!
