Posted for :contest COOKIES

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup soft butter
2 large eggs
1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 (6 1/2-ounce) packages thin mints
Walnut halves (optional)


Combine all ingredients except mints and walnuts in mixing bowl.
Blend until dough forms.
Take approximately 2 teaspoons of dough and wrap around 1 thin mint.
Make sure there are no gaps in dough or the mint will leak out while baking.
Smooth edges, press 1/2 walnut into top and bake at 375ļF for 9 - 12 minutes on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

You may need more than 2 packages of thin mints as they donít have as many mints in the package as they did when this recipe was created. The plainness of the cookie dough is balanced by the chocolate and mint for a very unique cookie.
