Chocolate Mint Cookies- Gluten Free or Not!

Pin It

 

Guess what?  Here’s another cookie recipe- and it’s a good one too!

These Chocolate Mint cookies are very similar in texture and appearance to my Cappuccino Thins.    These cookies are darker and have a deeper chocolate flavor though because there is 1/2 cup of Droste cocoa powder in them.  I used LorAnn Peppermint Oil instead of just a normal peppermint extract and it makes a world of difference in the flavor.  When I made this recipe originally, I used peppermint extract and the flavor was really good but there was a little bit of bitterness that I could detect.  If you use the LorAnn oil there is none of that, just a nice peppermint flavor.

After you have formed this cookie dough into 2 logs and wrapped them in wax paper, you need to chill the logs for a couple of hours until they are firm and easy to slice.

This recipe was originally published in Bon Appetit Magazine in January 2002.  It converted easily to gluten free and if you don’t have issues with gluten you can just make it with “regular” flour instead of the GF baking mix.

Bon Appetit shows these cookies with bittersweet chocolate drizzled on top which I have never done, but I’m sure it would be incredible!
