Years ago I was a girl scout. I was a brownie to be exact and only a brownie. Funny that I was the only category named after a dessert! Hmm.. LOL
Anyways Thin Mint’s have and always will be my number one. So chocolatey but minty and having them frozen with ice cream? OH MA GAWW!! Delicious.
After I made these Apple Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts I wanted cookies. Because I am never satisfied with one baked good. Sad, but true. Anyways I crushed up 1 sleeve of Thin Mints and added them to this delicious triple chocolate cookie dough.
This recipe is inspired by one of Jenny’s recipes at Picky Palate. To be honest I knew I wanted to grind up Thin Mints into cookies from some Cookies & Cream Cookies she made years ago. This idea has been on my to do list for a while now and I knew I could pawn off cookies this weekend so that was the schedule. But great minds think alike and Jenny posted basically the same cookie recently!
I used my own chocolate chip cookie recipe and added peppermint extract to keep in with the Thin Mint theme. I used 1/2 tsp in this large batch and gosh darn you could smell that peppermint. And you better believe you could taste it! LOL
This recipe is easy and makes a bunch. Perfect for freezing and baking up a fresh batch for a neighbor, co workers, friends or the kind lady doing your taxes
