This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was chosen by: Caroline of a Consuming Passion
My Mom was over so I put her to work. It’s been a while since we both were in the kitchen together. We had some laughs, I showed her some baking techniques, it was a nice time to catch up.
Nick and I have loads of herbs in our garden, including 4 different types of mint: Apple mint, Chocolate mint, Spearmint, and Peppermint
I used Peppermint and Chocolate mint. Chocolate mint tastes like thin mints, very appropriate for this recipe.
I let the leaves steep after boiling, which left my home very fragrant. I had thoughts of making a chocolate mint cream filling, but forgot to add the chocolate. So I stuck to the original recipe, which turned out just as delicious.
