Mint Oreo Cookies

The Chocolate Wafers

Makes about 40 Oreo average sized Oreo cookies.

•1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
•1/2 C unsweetened cocoa
•1 t baking soda
•1/4 t baking powder
•1/4 t salt
•1 C sugar
•1/2 C plus 2 T butter, room temperature

•1 large egg
1.In a medium-sized bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, baking soda and powder, salt, and sugar.
2.Beat in the butter and the egg. Continue mixing until dough comes together in a mass.
3.Take rounded teaspoons of batter and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart. With moistened hands, slightly flatten the dough. (I found that while the dough wasn't sticky enough to roll, I could press it flat with my hands like the recipe said and then use cookie cutters to cut perfect circles. If you just care about the taste, then there is no need for the cookie cutters. Also, remember this is a chance to get creative and use all kinds of cookie cutters.)

4.Bake for 9 minutes at 375 F. Set on a rack to cool.

Cream Cheese Filling Recipe:
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 block of cream cheese (8 oz)
3-4 cups - powdered sugar (depending on desired consistency)
1 - tsp vanilla extract
mint extract
green food coloring

Cream butter and add cream cheese and mix well. Add powdered sugar slowly until you reach your desired consistency.
