Chocolate Mint Cookies

Author: Susan Regan
Issue: December, 2011

My mother’s friend gave her this recipe in 1952. The stains on my recipe card show how much my own family loves this treat. It’s so simple to make, and a great way to end a day of Christmas baking, since you just leave them in the oven overnight with no worry about oven temperature or baking times. When my kids were younger, one would always come running to me in the morning asking if I’d forgotten to take the cookies out of the oven!
