Whole Wheat Mint And Chocochip Cookies

The home made mint extract was waiting to be used in a gorgeous bake and what better way than trying a mint and chocochip cookie? I have made mint and chocolate chip shortbread cookies before, using fresh mint leaves. And yes they did turn nice and tasty. But somehow I wanted something that gives that prominant ‘mint’ flavour in a super crunchy cookie. Well this definitely worked. Notes-

Home Made Non -Alcoholic Mint Extract/Essence

I love the idea of making things from scratch. This mint extract is super easy and made with just 2 ingredients. It does take 4 long weeks to get ready though. But the result is totally worth it. I loved how the vinegar had been completely infused with the flavour from those gorgeous mint leaves. Does this work you may ask? Well I tried this in a mint lime candy and yay the flavour was bang on. I am hoping it works in bakes too. I am pretty sure it is perfect for ice creams, sorbets and granitas.
