Chocolate Mint Cookies

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 package andes mint pieces  OR if you don't want mint, they are delicous with white chocolate chips

Combine the butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla.  Beat until light and fluffy.  Stir in the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt.  Stir in the chocolate pieces.  Drop rounded teaspoon onto a cookie sheet.  Bake 8-10 minutes- just until set.  Don't overbake.

I like to bake some now, and roll the dough for the rest.  I freeze it on a cookie sheet, then bag the cookie dough balls in zipper plastic bags and put in the freezer.  Then you can have hot, delicious cookies any time.  These are by far the best when they are warm from the oven.
