Chocolate Mint Truffle Cookies

Ladies, if it is that time of the month, I recommend you stop what you’re doing right now and make two, maybe three batches of these. I don’t remember the original basis for this recipe but it’s one I have memorized and can make at the drop of a hat.

These are not, in fact, very truffle-like once baked but the texture of the dough is quite truffle-y and rich. They satisfy my monthly craving for French truffles and I can’t keep peoples hands from them, especially Caleb’s.

Although it may be a cardinal sin as an American, I actually don’t very much care for chocolate chip cookies; instead, I prefer a rich chocolate cookie like this one. Also mint and chocolate are a match made in heaven.
