Start Cooking

Make the Cookies

Yield: 55 cookies

  1. In a mixer, using the dough hook, cream together margarine, sugar, brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract and water until it is a smooth, creamy mixture. Stop mixer every so often and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula ensuring all the margarine is absorbed. Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix until smooth dough forms.

  2. Melt chocolate in microwave. Add 1/2 teaspoon mint extract and mix well.(Mint extract is very concentrated, so if you want to feel a more minty taste, you can add more, but only one drop at a time.) Transfer chocolate-mint mixture to a squeeze bottle and squeeze small circles onto a lined baking sheet. Freeze for ten minutes, until the chocolate hardens. Place buttons into a small bowl and refrigerate.

  3. To assemble the cookies, pull off small balls from the dough. Inside each ball, hide a chocolate mint button and roll with your hands so it is completely covered by dough. Transfer to a lined oven sheet. Continue forming cookies with the remainder of the dough and “buttons.” Allow space between each cookie; they will spread during baking.

  4. Bake at 350 degree Fahreneit (180 degrees Celsius) in a preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Cool. Dust cookies with confectioner's sugar and serve.

Note:

The cookies freeze very well without the confectioner's sugar topping. When you're ready to use them, remove from freezer, defrost for a short time and then dust with the sugar.
