This is a simple cookie that my family loves.
INGREDIENTS (for 9 servings):
- 2 1/2 cups butter, softened
- 4 cups white sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Cream together, butter, sugar and eggs. Mix in remaining ingredients. Blend well.
Drop by teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8-9 minutes. Cookies will be soft. Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheet then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Recipe Variation: For a different flavor, omit peppermint extract and use a total of 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Also substitute peanut butter flavored chips for the chocolate chips.
