St Patrick’s Day is next week, and what is the best way to celebrate? A few beers! Okay, okay, so since it’s on a Sunday night, and my body can’t handle drinking more than a few sips of anything without it reeking havoc on my body the next day, I think I will stick with the second best thing. Baked goods. Green baked goods at that. It is not really enjoying the holiday if your mouth doesn’t turn green right? Especially if you bring these in to the office.
Betty Crocker has a 5-star cookie recipe that you have to try. Minty, chocolatety, and festive.
Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
