Mint-Chocolate Slices

Ok here it is… my first ever original cookie recipe.  I was inspired by the simpleness of my prior Maple Slices cookies into making something similar but with a different flavoring… chocolate and mint was what I settled on. (Naturally because I’m from a mint city and a chocoholic!)

I'm not a Girl Scout, I just play one in the kitchen!


  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder


  1. Beat Butter, sugars and mint extract in large bowl until fluffy.
  2. Mix in remaining dry ingredients
  3. Shape Dough into roll on wax paper, wrap and refrigerate until firm (~2 hours)
  4. Heat Oven to 375ºF (190ºC)
  5. Slice dough into 1/4 inch (0.6cm) slices and place on baking sheet.
  6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until slightly browned at the edges.
  7. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely on wire rack.
I was surprised at how much like traditional Girl Scout Thin Mints these tasted.  They just need a thin chocolate shell.  I would suggest if making for sharing…. double the recipe size.  I kept my batch small because it was something new.
