Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookies and speedy Holidays

Just as we exit the day for lovers every where the stores prepare for the next holiday. While the chocolate hearts, candy bears and all Valentine items are sold for 1/2 the price they were the day before the stores begin to fill the shelves with bunnies, peeps and other Easter items. Yes the time to spend on holidays is short lived. I thought you may be interested in being ready for St. Patricks day as well. Today, February 19 is chocolate mint day and I also think these mint cookies would be perfect for St. Patricks day, March 17. What do you think too early or time to get it all organized??

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups mint chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white sugar for decoration

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together 1 cup sugar and vegetable oil. Stir in the egg and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually stir into the sugar mixture. Mix in mint chocolate chips. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls. Roll each ball in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar to coat. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
