Okay, here it is...let's all get some new ideas. Here's my favorite:
Preheat oven to 350.
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup lt. brown sugar, packed
6 Tbsp. butter (or margarine)
1 Tbsp. water
6 oz (1 cup) semisweet chocolate pieces
Pastel cream mint kisses (like Hickory Farms sells)
Heat butter, brown sugar, and water over low heat until butter melts, stirring constantly. Add chocolate, heat and stir until melted. Pour into mixing bowl and let cool for 10 to 15 minutes. In separate bowl, mix flour and baking soda. Set aside.
Beat egg into chocolate mixture. Add flour and mix well. (This can all be done by hand as the dough isn't very stiff until chilled.) Cover and chill for 1 to 2 hours. (Make sure you cover well, or it will dry out and get crumbly.)
Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2-inches apart on cookie sheet and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven, and place mint on top of each cookie. Return to oven for 1-2 minutes. Swirl the mints with a knife to frost the cookies. (When you pull them out, the mints will look unmelted, but once you push on them, they will spread.) Remove from cookie sheet and cool until mints are firm. Makes about four dozen cookies. (But they won't last long!)
Now it's your turn!!!
