Oh Rach, you had me at the dough.
One of my favorite culinary delights is the marriage of chocolate and mint, so when I was flipping through the latest issue of Rachel Ray’s magazine, this cookie recipe lifted itself off the page and begged me to make it. I mean, it has a peppermint patty inside! I can always tell I’m going to like a cookie when I taste the dough and it’s good enough to be its own dessert. This dough was rich and chocolatey, so I knew I had a winner on my hands. (I know I know — raw eggs and all that, but it was worth taking a walk on the wild side to taste this deliciousness.) Anyway, my version of the cookies is pictured above. And Rach’s version is pictured here. Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a food stylist.
