"Chewy like a cookie, gooey like a brownie, this cookie gives you the best of both. The dough is soft, but slips off the cookie scoop easily and bakes into perfectly shaped rounds.

Instead of 1 teaspoon vanilla I did a 1/2 te..." See moreaspoon, then 1 teaspoon of mint extract. Sub 2 cups regular chocolate chips.
