A classic cookie featuring a favourite flavour combo.

During the holidays, baking often takes centre stage with Monika Hibbs‘s family in Victoria, BC. “I like to start in early December because I love to package up cookies as little hostess gifts,” she says. This particular recipe was borrowed from a friend who originally gifted the cookies to the family as a housewarming present. Monika loved them so much, she added them to their holiday repertoire, with a personal twist—mint. “Chocolate and mint is one of my favourite flavour combinations at this time of year.”
