Em, a reader and real-life recipe user, wrote in to sing the praises of my Mocha Mint Cookies. Here's what she had to say:
Oh. My. God.
These are amazing. And I've only tasted the dough. Instead of using Junior Mints, I used what I had on hand (ground up coffee beans into my own version of espresso powder, Andes Creme De Menthe Baking Chips, and cappuccino chips I found at World Market).
My favorite, by far.
Then this the next day:
and after eating the very vast majority of them, I am reminded why I don't bake your cookies as often. Because I eat them all.
Thanks for the feedback, Em! And great use of what you had on hand. I love that you love this recipe. It's been a while since I've made these, and I notice that I haven't done a Picturing post for them yet. I think I have some homework in my future.
