The DEAR SANTASAURUS Blog Tour - Thin(ish) Mints

Yeah Friday! Hope you find time for reading and baking.

My family loves Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, but you can only get them four months each year. Solution: We made our own. They aren't quite as thin, but they're still yummy.

Thin(ish) Mint Cookies

1 box chocolate cake mix
3 TBS shortening, melted
1/2 C flour (plus extra if needed)
1 egg
3 TBS water
1/2 tsp peppermint extract

12 oz chocolate chips
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
4 TBS shortening

1. Combine first 6 ingredients into a dough. Form into two 1" logs.
2. Wrap logs in wax paper and freeze for an hour.
3. Preheat oven to 375.
4. Slice cookies about 1/4" thick. Place on lined cookie sheet.
5. Bake 13-15 minutes.
6. Cool completely.
7. Microwave last 3 ingredients (50% power) until melted. Dip wafers into melted chocolate using a fork. Dry on wax paper.

Hints & Help:
I added about an extra 1/4 C of flour because the dough was too sticky.
This recipe was adapted from Instructables. You can see that I made a few changes.

 Don't miss the rest of the tour.
