Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 50

3/4 Cup(s) Butter or margarine
1 Cup(s) Sugar
1 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1 Egg
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Mint extract
Few drops of green food
2 1/4 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
1/2 Cup(s) Finely crushed chocolate
sandwich cookies with
filling about 6 cookies
1 Teaspoon(s) Shortening, optional
Beat butter or margarine in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer
on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and baking powder
and beat till combined. Beat in egg, mint extract, and enough food
coloring to tint light to medium green. Beat in as much of the flour
as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden
spoon. Divide dough in half. Cover and chill about 1 hour or till
easy to handle. Roll one half of dough between two sheets of waxed
paper into an 8x7 inch rectangle. Peel off top sheet of waxed paper.
Sprinkle half of crushed cookies evenly over dough to within 1/4 inch
of all sides. Roll up, jelly-roll style, staring from one short side,
removing bottom sheet of waxed paper as you roll. Pinch to seal.
Repeat with remaining dough and crushed cookies. Wrap rolls in waxed
paper or clear plastic wrap. Chill about 4 hours or till firm. Remove
one roll of dough from the refrigerator. Unwrap and reshape slightly,
if necessary. Cut dough into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place 2 inches
apart on an ugreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375øF oven for 8 to 9
minutes or till edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute.
Remove and cool completely on wire racks. Repeat with remaining roll
of dough. If desired, melt together chocolate and shortening in a
heavy saucepan over low heat; drizzle over cookies. Makes about 50
