A spin off the classic Grasshopper pie, this skillet cookie combines bourbon and crème de menthe chocolate mints for a boozy, refreshing dessert. Grasshopper pie was originally inspired by the Grasshopper cocktail, which consists of crème de menthe, white crème de cacao, and cream. We think you should top this with a scoop of mint chocolate chip for a fresh, minty, melt-in-your-mouth cookie.
