12 Days of Christmas Cookies -- Day 7: Grinch Cookies

I saw these cookies and thought they'd be cute to try for the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies.  My picture does them no justice.  They're called Grinch Cookies because they're supposed to be green.  Unfortunately, I was out of green food coloring so I combined blue and yellow.  My green was less than stellar.  But, they tasted delicious, so that makes up for the lack of color, right?  I think so.  These have a delicious minty flavor plus they have goey chocolate chips.  Perfect!  These are another cookie that are best eaten warm.  So, if yours doesn't come straight out of the oven, warm it up in the microwave before eating it.  Totally worth it.
