Mint Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies

These are my favorite cookies for Christmas.  My husband does not like mint cookies. So when I make these amazing cookies I end up eating them all. 

I took a batch to work and made a second batch for home. It turns out that 1 of my 2 sons also likes mint cookies just like his mama.  

I will post the recipe for my hubby's favorite Christmas cookie too.  He loves the traditional peanut blossoms.

Stir in the mint chips.

The dough is a bit sticky so I use a teaspoon and drop some into the sugar and sprinkle some on top then I pick the cookies up and roll them in my hands.

Mint Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
one-10 ounce package mint chocolate chips (I used Hershey)
additional sugar


Preheat oven to 350F. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In large mixer bowl, combine granulated sugar and oil. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in the mint chips. Shape into rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls; roll in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake 8 - 10 minutes until set. Let stand on cookie sheets 2 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to wire racks to cool completely.

makes about 4 1/2 dozen
