Chocolate Mint Cookies

Collin is in the 6th grade advanced math class right now and one of their assignments was to find a recipe that included at least 5 fractions. So he looked through the family cookbook - A Taste of Chase and decided on the recipe for Chocolate Mint Cookies. We made them this afternoon because each student in advanced math is supposed to bring a sampling of their recipe. I'm not that much of a chocolate fan - but even I thought these cookies were good. Here's the recipe....


3/4 c. butte
2 c. chocolate chips
2 1/2 c. flour
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 TB water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 box Andes mints candy

In medium saucepan, melt butter, brown sugar and water until melted. Add chocolate chips and cook until partially melted, remove from stove and stir until completely melted. Let cool for 10 minutes. On high speed, beat in eggs. Reduce to low speed and add remaining ingredients. Chill for one hour.

Roll into nickel sized balls and place on foil lined cookie sheet 2" apart. Bake at 350ºF for 12-13 minutes. Remove from oven, press 1/2 mint on top of each cookie. Let melt and swirl with knife. Let stand on cookie sheet for two minutes and place on cooling rack. Makes approximately 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
