Delicate Mint Thins

I made these cookies for a bake sale, they were a big hit and sold very quickly. The lady that bought them then called and asked me for the recipe. I got many complements on the look of them.

Instructions

  1. 1In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in mint. Shape into two 8-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  1. 1Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 F. for 8-12 minutes or until edges are golden. Remove to wire racks to cool.
    In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway into chocolate; shake off excess. Place on waxed paper to harden. Yield: about 4-1/2 dozen.
