Hint of Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies with Walnuts

Mint Chocolate Brownie Cookies with Walnuts

Mint and chocolate is a winning combination, but mint can be a tricky ingredient to work with. This is because it has such a strong flavor that it can easily overwhelm the other elements in a recipe. One solution is to cut back slightly on the mint and to pair it with other strong flavors – like dark chocolate or cocoa – so that you ... Read More »

Used properly, honey can be a great sweetener in cookies – ... Read More »

Mojito Cookies

Mojito Cookies

Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails. They are made by muddling fresh mint leaves and sugar at the bottom of a highball glass, adding ice and then topping the mint mixture with rum, lime juice and soda water. Because of the mint and the lime juice, the cocktail is very refreshing – so refreshing that I’ll even add some mint to my homemade limeade ... Read More »
