Creme de menthe liqueur tints these biscuits a light green and adds a pleasing minty taste. And adult version of choc chip biscuits!
From the submitter's comment, I expected the cookies to be obviously green, but they looked like regular chocolate chip cookies. The green color was almost imperceptible, as was the creme de menthe flavoring in the baked cookie dough. The only noticeable mint flavor came from the chips themselves. Although they were good, next time I'll just add mint chocolate chips to a standard chocolate chip cookie recipe and save my creme de menthe. I bought a bottle especially for this recipe and essentially wasted my money as neither the color nor the flavor came through in the cookies. - 29 May 2001 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Not the best looking cookie, but they sure are good. Kind of refreshing, actually, like an after dinner mint. I guess I wasn’t too good at following directions because I mistakenly interpreted the chips called for as mint chips (green) not mint CHOCOLATE chips (brown). But it was a happy mistake, because they were delicious. The crème de menthe lends just the right amount of mint flavor to the cookie but it also lends a not particularly attractive color, which is sort of a greenish-brown. Deceptive, because they’re surprisingly good. - 14 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I wanted a different cookie and thought this sounded good so I tried it. I had to improvise because I only had regular chocolate chips but they turned out great. I did get way more than 2 and a half dozen but the more the better. The mint flavor is a nice twist to chocolate chip cookies. - 14 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
