Mint Brownie Cookies
A mix of brownies and peppermint patties make these cookies deliciously minty!
  • ⅔ cup shortening
  • 1⅓ cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 TB water
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¼ cups flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 8 oz. pkg. YORK Mini Peppermint Patties
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Beat shortening, brown sugar, water, and vanilla in a large bowl on medium speed until well blended.
  3. Add eggs; beat well.
  4. Stir together flour, cocoa, salt and baking soda.
  5. Gradually add to sugar mixture, beating on low speed until blended.
  6. Stir in WHOLE peppermint patties. {the tendency is to cut the patties in half, but DON'T! They'll ooze and melt and make a mess!}
  7. Drop by rounded tablespoons 2" apart onto engrossed cookie sheet.
  8. Bake 7-9 minutes. Cookies will appear soft and moist. Do not overbake.
  9. Cook 2 minutes and remove to wire rack for cooling.


These cookies are simple to make and when you see the oozing white of the Peppermint Patties, you’d better get that glass of milk ready!  

We wrapped these Mint Brownie Cookies up for Sami’s teacher this last week.  We presented her with a Dessert of the Month treat that you can see here.
