Mint Crinkles

Yield: about 36 cookies
Prep 25 mins Cool 15 mins Bake 350°F 10 mins
Mint Crinkles
Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  finely chopped layered chocolate-mint candies (about 4 ounces or 24 candies)
  • 1/3  cup  shortening
  • 1  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  eggs
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla
  • 1 1/2  cups  all-purpose flour
  •  Layered chocolate-mint candies, chopped
Directions

1. In a heavy small saucepan, heat and stir the 3/4 cup chopped candies until melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Cool about 15 minutes.

2. In a large bowl, beat shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, baking powder, and salt; beat until well combined. Beat in cooled chocolate, eggs, and vanilla. Beat or stir in flour. Cover and chill 3 hours or until dough is easy to handle.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using about 1 tablespoon of dough per ball, shape dough into 1-1/4-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes or until edges are set (tops should crackle). Sprinkle a few candy pieces on top of each cookie; do not press candies into cookies. Bake 1 minute more. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 36 cookies.
