Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Hi, it me Lily again.

Today was my first day of vacation. I have no school next week, and I’m so excited! I don’t have to wake up early which will be good because my mom says I can’t wake up in the mornings. I always ask her if I can sleep for a few more minutes. ;)

My mom said we will be trying some new recipes next week, and I’m so excited.  Today’s recipe is a new one that I really liked. We made them yesterday and I got to have a cookie yesterday and another one today! They are Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies that are perfect for Christmas time. :)

    Super delicious!! I love mint and chocolate together. Did you know that Nestle Tollhouse makes mint chocolate chips just for Christmas season. They are so totally delicious in cookies. A family favorite!!
