Preheat oven to 375 F

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract in a large mixer bowl until creamer. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Add food coloring and spear mint flakes. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely
