No need to be anti-Christmas to love these cookies. Even the Grinch himself would gobble them up!

Who do you know that would love some Grinch cookies this season?

i am in the process of trying to make these cookies and you have baking soda and cream of tartar for ingredients and no where in the instructions does it say when to put it in so i'm guessing it's the same time as the baking powder and flour. I just wanted to point this out. But other wise they look good.

Oh those are too cute! Mint chocolate chip is one of my favorite flavors and I love how the green plays into the Christmas/Grinch theme. And those hearts - perfect touch without being over the top. Thanks for sharing with us at the #HomeMattersParty link party.
