So since its been winter break and I’m not in Portland, rather than going to food carts, I’ve been baking and cooking.
The other day I made Mint Crinkle Cookies, which are perhaps the tastiest cookies. its like a softer fluffier and moister version of a sugar cookie but with mint added and when you eat them fresh and warm or microwave them they melt in your mouth.
I’ve been making them forever and I can literally eat 10 in a day and feel great.
Basically its 1/2 cup of melted butter, 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 tsps of peppermint, a tsp of vanilla, an egg, 1/4 cup of milk, 2 cups of flour, 2 tsps of baking powder, 1/4 tsp of salt, and a bunch of those colored sugar crystal sprinkle-y things. and you mix them all together. i usually add food coloring too. it makes them pretty..
i didn’t have milk so i used water instead and they still turned out great
