These Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies [1] are a hit anytime because of the double cookie thing that no one can resist. In addition, my Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies [2] take traditional oatmeal cookies to a whole new level!

How to Make the Best Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

We prefer them crispy on the edges, warm and gooey on the insides! You know how to get them that way???

The secret to cookies with perfectly crisp outer edges and a soft chewy middles is really simple. I NEVER bake cookies without it. It’s the Silpat Baking Mat [17]. It turns your everyday oven into a professional baking superstar. Seriously, it’s amazing how well recipes cook or bake with this little mat! It’s non-stick so no need to use parchment paper. It works for both sweet and savory recipes!
