These taste as close as you can get to the thin mint cookies that is everyone's favorite of the Girl Scouts.


Cookie: Glaze:


Sift the cake mix and flour together over the mixer bowl. Add the shortening and the egg and mix well. Dribble the water in and let it mix until the dough forms. Add the water JUST till it forms into a ball. Take the dough out and form into an 8 inch round. Slip in plastic wrap and refrigerate for about an hour.

Set the almond bark, extract, and shortening over a double boiler on low heat to melt. (A small heat-proof bowl over a small pot with a little water will do.) Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.


Roll half of the dough at a time to 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. (I use freezer wrap or butcher paper to make for easy clean up). Cut with desired cookie cutter (I used a 2 inch round) and place on cookie sheet 1 inch apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Slip some wax paper under the racks and drizzle cookies with peppermint glaze. Allow to set (mine took about an hour). I got about 50 cookies out of this dough.

Note: I didn't have the pure extract but had the imitation extract so I used that. I think you would be safe in adding a tsp. of the imitation or perhaps add a 1/2 tsp. to the cake mix and 1/2 tsp. to the chocolate.

  5. Divide dough in half. Take 1 half of the dough and add cocoa, and stir until blended. With the other half, add mint extract and a few drops of green coloring. Mix.
  6. Take each portions of the dough and cut in half (making 2 chocolate and 2 mint). Take 1 of the chocolate and roll to about 9 inches long. Take a chunk(1/2) of the the green dough and roll the same.
  7. Place 1 of each side by side and gently twist and roll together. This makes 2- 9 inch long lengths. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  8. Cut dough into 1/2 inch for soft cookies; 1/4 inch for crunchy cookie.
  9. Bake at 350 F for 9 to 10 minute. Cool on baking rack. Melt chocolate morsels and drizzle tops of cookies. Here comes YUM!

This is an easy recipe using a sugar cookie mix as a base. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter, extract, food color, and egg until soft dough forms.


Stir in creme de menthe baking chips and chocolate chunks.

You can cut your mints in half, but you will have to make bigger cookies. Also, I have found that smaller pieces of mint give the cookie just the right hint of mint and chocolate without making it overpowering...
