Ingredients

  • 1

    cup unsalted butter, softened

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1

    egg

  • 2

    teaspoons mint extract

  • ½

    teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2-¾

    cups all-purpose flour

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • 12

    drops red food coloring

  • 12

    drops green food coloring

  • 1-½

    cups white baking chips

  • Crushed mint candies

Directions

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Set aside half the dough. Divide remaining dough in half; add green food coloring to one portion and red food coloring to the other. Wrap dough separately in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours or until easy to handle. Preheat oven to 350°. Divide green and red dough into 24 portions each. Divide plain dough into 48 portions. Roll each into a 4-in. rope. Place each green rope next to a white rope; press together gently and twist. Repeat with red ropes and remaining white ropes. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes before carefully removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. In a microwave, melt white chips; stir until smooth. Dip cookie ends into melted chips; allow excess to drip off. Sprinkle with crushed candies and place on waxed paper. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 dozen.
