Thin Mint Cookies
Author: Joe the Baker
  • 155 grams butter
  • 270 grams sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 grams mint extract
  • 3 grams vanilla extract
  • 200 grams flour
  • 15 grams cornstarch
  • 65 grams cocoa powder
  • 5 grams salt
  • Chocolate for coating
  1. Cream sugar and butter until fluffy.
  2. Add egg and vanilla extract and blend to combine.
  3. Separately, combine dry ingredients and sift to blend.
  4. Mix wet and dry ingredients together on low speed until a stiff dough is formed.
  5. Wrap the dough and refrigerate for about an hour. (If you want to stick to the classic round wafer shape, roll the dough into a log and chill.)
  6. Shape cookies as desired and bake at 350F until the edges are firm and start to crack slightly.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the pan for about three minutes before cooling completely on a wire rack.
  8. Once completely cool, coat with your chocolate of choice and enjoy.
