Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (170 grams), at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar (300 grams)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (240 grams)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (60 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate (170 grams), chopped (see Notes)
  • 1 cup mint baking chips (200 grams), see Notes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and creamy, about 4 minutes.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Add the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to the mixer and mix until just combined.
  • Add the chocolate chips, if using.
  • Scoop by the rounded tablespoon onto the prepared sheet pan and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake until edges are crisp, about 8-9 minutes. Let cool on the pan for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for several days.
