Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wish I tried these.
 

This is another recipe from the cookie exchange I hosted.  These cookies were brought by my friend Monica (the same friend that I did these wedding cupcakes).  These are actually the cookies that  I wish I tried the most.  Zack would not stop raving about these cookies.  He has continuously told me that he is not a fan of mint, but after his rave reviews of these cookies and his love of my Mint Chocolate Delights, I am starting to have my doubts.  He keeps asking me to make these and I may just mix up a batch tomorrow.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
