Thin Mints

* 1/2 cup sugar
* 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
* 1 cup Pamela's Baking mix
* 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
* 1/4 tsp vanilla
* 1/2 tsp peppermint oil
* 1 egg

*3 oz chocolate (any will work, I used leftover valentine's day chocolate)
* 1 T butter
* 1/2 tsp peppermint oil

Use mixer to whip butter and sugar. Stir in baking mix, cocoa, vanilla, peppermint, and egg. Roll into a log and wrap in saran wrap. Freeze for about 30 minutes. Take out of freezer and slice cookies no bigger than 1/4 inch.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes for a thin and crispy wafer.
Melt chocolate and butter for 20 sec intervals in the microwave, stirring until completely melted. Add peppermint oil. Dip cookies in melted chocolate and coat completely. Put cookies on parchment to cool and allow chocolate to harden before eating. Or enjoy frozen for that authentic girl scout cookie taste :)

Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
