Brian s Chocolate Mint Christmas Cookies


1/2 cup butter, unsalted
1 cup sugar, granulated
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp mint extract
1/2 tsp mint extract
1/2 cup flour, unbleached
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder, double-acting
2 oz chocolate, unsweetened
1 non-paralleils, multi-colored
2 tsp water

Beat butter until soft; gradually add sugar and blend until creamy.
Mix in beaten egg and extracts. DON T USE A FOOD PROCESSOR!!!

Stir salt and baking powder into flour; stir into butter/sugar

Melt chocolate in water over a double-boiler; add to dough. Form into
a long roll approximately 2" - 3" wide. Wrap dough with plastic wrap
and chill overnight.

Slice dough 1/4" thick and place on greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle
with non-paralleils and press in slightly with back of spoon. Bake in
400 degree oven for 8 - 10 minutes. Cool cookies on rack.

Vicki s notes:

* Can substitute 3 oz. semi-sweet chips for the chocolate.

* These cookies came about when my husband asked me to make
chocolate-mint cookies for Christmas. (They are based on the
refrigerator cookies in "Joy of Cooking," with my own variations.)
Although disappointed because he really wanted Girl Scout cookies
(!), everybody else likes them and I ve had several requests for the
recipe. (Actually, my husband usually asks for chocolate chip
cookies, no matter what time of year...)
