Chocolate Mint Cookies Recipe
1-1/4 cups butter (no substitutes), softened
2 cups sugar
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups flour
3/4 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
32 round thin chocolate-covered mint patties
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating well until combined. Drop by tablespoonsfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 350° F. for 8-9 minutes or until puffy and tops are cracked. Invert half of the cookies onto wire racks. Immediately place a mint patty on each. Then top with remaining cookies. Press lightly to seal. Cool completely.
Yield: 32 sandwich cookies.
