Lawrence’s 35th birthday is a few weeks away and I am throwing him a little shin-dig. I am excited…there is going to be a pizza truck and a cookie bar. I repeat… a pizza truck and a cookie bar!! Yeah this is happening. One of the girls in my mommy group told me about this pizza truck and well, I can’t wait!!
The nice thing about the pizza truck is that there is no prep work for me. The cookie bar however is a whole other situation. I am going to be baking up a storm the next few weeks.
To give everyone a sneak peek of what is to come (and what I have been up to besides keeping Emma alive that is); I am sharing one of the cookie recipes I came up with that will also be in the cookie bar.
Since Lawrence’s favorite flavor is mint chocolate, I made him a mint chocolate version from his favorite chocolate chip cookie…. YUM! Normally I am not a mint chocolate ice cream or cookie person but this might be my new favorite.
Mint Chocolate Cookie Recipe
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) light brown sugar
8 to 10 drops of green food coloring
4. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat. Set aside.
