Good morning Friends! This weekend I am catching up on a few things in the fiscal department. I am going to be working on summarizing our tax information for last year, which is never fun, even for someone that likes to organize. In fact, I usually find other things to do to avoid starting.

So to make my day a little brighter, I made some simple cookies with a St. Patrick’s day twist with the help of these little guys. This recipe is a quick one and they truly do not take long to make.

List of main ingredients for this recipe.

Mint Chocolate Candies – The fun in these cookies is using Mint chocolate candies to make them. They are all green, so it really adds to the festiveness of the cookie. 

Flour – I use all-purpose flour for this recipe.

Butter – Honestly, I always bake with real butter when possible. The butter flavor cannot be beaten even though it does cost a little more.

3/4 cup sugar

2 1/4 cups flour

1/2  teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup mint chocolate chip candies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter, eggs, and sugars.


Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and combine them into the butter mixture. Add chocolate candies last. Roll into 1 1/2″ balls onto greased cookie sheet. Press a couple of chips on top of each cookie for decorative purposes. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool a few minutes before removing from the baking sheet.

timesaving tips to streamline recipes

Make the dough the night before and chill. The cookies will still be freshly baked (which always tastes best).

Use parchment paper on the cookie sheet. This not only makes for a nice even cookie, but it also saves valuable clean up time too!
