Chocolate Thin Mints

 Hello Blogging Friends!  Boy have I got a treat for you!!  This may be one of my FAVORITE minty cookie EVER!  (I know I say that this one is my favorite in every post...but hey...what can I say??)

You see that yummy white center?  That would be a York Peppermint Pattie!  Oh yes, I went there!!  Now imagine it nice and warm with an amazing buttercream frosting melting in your mouth.  SO GOOD!  Go ahead, run to the store, buy some Yorks and get baking!  Oh, and your welcome:)

Jennie...thanks again for another amazing recipe!! (My cousin gave this to me like 10 years ago!)

Chocolate Thin Mints

1 1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 pkg York Peppermint Patties

Combine the first four ingredients in bowl.  In separate bowl, beat sugar and butter until well blended.  Add vanilla and egg.  Slowly add dry ingredients.  Mix.  Chill dough for 30 minutes if it's too soft.  Shape dough around peppermint pattie.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Top with powdered sugar or your favorite Buttercream frosting.  They taste the best really warm.  So when you eat them, and they are cold, put in the microwave for 8 seconds...just a tip:)
