These cookies are really good. I used part margarine and part shortening (instead of all shortening). The dough was kind of soft even after refrigerating overnight but still well worth baking. I will send this recipe to my family and friends (along with a note of where it came from).



Positives: 1)Very easy to prepare, 2)Refrigerated and sliced very easily, and 3)Very nice texture after baking. Negatives: 1)Little to no chocolate taste and 2)Not very sweet. Made these exactly as written. If you plan to decorate with icing, you will solve the sweet issue. If you are relying on a chocolate taste, think again. These would do well as a sandwiching cooking. I will try again and add cocoa or just leave all the chocolate out and add almond extract and poopy seeds.



If you want a cookie that tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint and yet is Christmasy, try this recipe. Then when the cookies are cool, coat the top with melted mint chocolate chips, and then sprinkle on Colored sugars to make it a holiday cookie. Yummy!!
