Andes Mint Cookies

My husband loves anything mint, so I knew these cookies were perfect for him. 

1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups chopped Andes Mints
 1/4 cup if needed

In a mixing bowl add the sugars

add the margarine

mix together until smooth (on medium speed), then add the egg and egg yolk

in a separate bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder

add the vanilla and mix well

add the dry mixture in 2 equal parts mixing well after each addition (if the dough is too thick to mix the mints in to add the 1/4 cup milk)

chop the andes mints

fold in the mints to the dough

drop by a tablespoon full on an ungreased cookie sheet

bake at 350 degree for 10-12 minutes (I baked mine for 11 and they were perfect) until they are slightly golden.
