Minty Chocolate Cookie Drops
Makes about 5 dozen cookies

  • 180g soft butter
  • 150g fine sugar
  • 60g dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsps mint extract
  • 50g best quality Dutch cocoa powder
  • 320g all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsps whole milk

Cream the butter and the sugars in a large bowl. Add the egg and the mint extract and beat again. Add in the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder and salt and stir through with a wooden spoon. Add in the milk and knead the dough until it comes together. Preheat the oven to 190C and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Roll out little balls the size of walnuts and arrange them on your baking sheet with a little space between them. Flatten them a little with the prongs of a fork and bake (in batches, if necessary) for 12-15 minutes. Allow them to cool on a wire rack and keep in an airtight container for about 5 days.
