I had a mini-meltdown while trying to make these. I accidentally put a whole egg in when I was supposed to put in egg whites...it just kind of slipped right out of the shell. Next, I realized I didn't have any vanilla...so I added some peppermint extract. Vanilla is just for flavor, right? To top it off, I totally could not find the baking soda. I know we have baking soda. I kind of remembered running out of vanilla, but not baking soda. It was nowhere to be found. Online they said I could sub two times as much baking powder. Thank goodness for the Internet.
They actually taste good! I like the freshness of the peppermint, although I have never had peppermint chocolate chip cookies. They have a cake-ish texture which I kind of like. We'll see how Jordan likes them!
