Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies #ChristmasCookies

Wow, this week has just flown by. I can't believe it is already Day 4 of Christmas Cookie Week.  Today I am sharing everyone's favorite cookie, The Chocolate Chip.

How do you take a classic cookie and make it suitable for the holidays?  Well, if you're me, you add peppermint and food coloring, creating these Christmasy Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies.

This is simply a chocolate chip cookie in which I substituted peppermint extract for the vanilla extract.  My peppermint extract was provided by our sponsor for this event, Nielsen-Massey.  All opinions are my own.
