I know I seem to talk about food and baking an awful lot lately, but bear with me…if only because these are the best cookies you will ever eat. For ages. For serious. I mean, I’m speaking specifically to the people who love their mint and chocolate, but even if you’re on the fence about this delicious combination…these will tip you into full-blown fandom.
Okay, enough rambling. I used this Peppermint Pattie Cookie recipe from How Sweet It Is; Jessica added a chocolate drizzle to hers, which I will absolutely be adding next time, but for ease of transport (these were made for a friends’ birthday do) I left it off. If you, er, ‘accidentally’ double the peppermint extract, then you’re going to need a little chocolate drizz to even out the flavours.
So…these were the perfect accompaniment to a lazy saturday. First, brunch with, like, all the food, and the most amazing mini cinnamon rolls ever (Lia, I need that recipe!) and about five hours of excellent chat, mimosas, scrabble and Africa catch-ups. And then a birthday do. And more food. And more chat. And some wine. Pretty Damn Awesome. Definitely made up for today’s slightly wasted day in front of a computer in the name of learning (don’t ask).
Knowing what my to-do list looks like tomorrow, I certainly wish I had more of these stashed away for a little ‘me’ time…
