Use an ice cream scoop to scoop dough onto a cookie sheet.  Fill the ice cream scoop with water and measure it in a liquid measuring cup to know how big your cookies will be.  This is important to know how long to bake your cookies.
If you love mint, replace two teaspoons of vanilla with mint extract.  Do not replace all the vanilla with mint.
Andie's Baking Chips can be found in the baking aisle with chocolate chips.
Mint M & M's can be found with the Christmas candy.
