Do you need Tempting on this Tuesday?

Amanda has been hard at work researching mint recipes for me.  This was her winning pick for using up more fresh mint.  Thanks for the photography, too, Amanda!

Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Fresh Mint

1 stick of butter, room temperature
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1/3 c. white sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract, you made the good stuff, right?
1-1/2 c. of all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. of salt
1/4 tsp. of baking soda
3/4 c. of chocolate chips, we used a mixture of dark and semi-sweet Ghiradelli chips, milk would be too sweet and the dark added just the right amount of oomph!
1/4 c of packed fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

You know the drill.  No one needs to tell you how to make a chocolate chip cookie.  We used a medium sized scoop, then slightly pressed them down with our fingers and baked them on parchment lined sheets, at 350°, for 12-15 minutes or until gooey and the smell drove us crazy.

Makes about 18 depending on the size scoop you use.

Not sure if I can top this one, tomorrow, or ever for that matter!  But I will give it a try!
