I don't mean to brag but I may have outdome myself.  These things rock my socks

So let's start,
Gather the usual suspects:

2 1/4 cups All purpose flour
1/4 c. corn starch
6 tablespooons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/3 cup milk (I use 2%)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
token 1971 Sunbeam mixer

Cream butter and sugar

sift dry ingredients
flour

cocoa

corn starch

salt


alternate dry mixture and milk


add vanilla

and peppermint extract

mix til crumbly
(it will look like crumb topping to apple pie)

tear 2 sheets of aluminum foil and pour 1/2 the batter onto each sheet

shape with your hands into two logs (they will look like poo)

wrap the foil around the logs to hold their shape paying close attention to the ends to make them flat

have your beautiful assistant help you carry them to the freezer

freeze for 1-2 hours

in the meantime whip up a delicious dinner of chicken enchiladas with key lime pie for dessert


preheat oven to 350 degrees
unwrap logs and slice into quarter inch thickness
I used my cheese slicer for precise cutting but a knife will do just fine

place on ungreased cookie sheet close together (the cookies do not spread out so they can lay side by side)

bake for 13 minutes

cool on wire racks

for coating:
melt 8 ounces chocolate almond bark

in double boiler


drop cookies one at a time in melted chocolate and turn over once in chocolate

remove from chocolate with a fork and slide fork on edge of pan to remove excess

place on foil lined cookie sheets to cool

one more round in the fridge to set the chocolate and VOILA!  you have your very own thin mint cookies!

Now go make some!!

love to all!

These look delicious! I think I have all the ingredients needed except for the beautiful assistant to help with freezer duty! I may try to wing it alone and make these cookies anyway.
