Expert Tips

  • Let your butter soften first before mixing up your dough to give your cookies the perfect cookie texture. Butter usually takes about 30 minutes to soften. To speed up the process, set sticks on a plate in the back of your oven as it preheats, but only for a few minutes!
  • Oven temperatures may vary, so be careful to watch the cooking time closely on these cookies to ensure they aren't overcooked.
  • For an added burst of chocolate, drizzle a little melted chocolate over the cookies after they cool. Let the chocolate set and then these cookies will be ready to impress!
  • Make the ultimate mint-chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches! Cool your cookies and add mint chocolate chip ice cream to the center of two cookies. Press together and either eat right away or wrap tightly in plastic wrap and freeze to enjoy later. Label the outside and then eat within two months.
