DARK CHOCOLATEMINT, PEPPERMINT CRACKLE COOKIES

Note:  all ingredients are ORGANIC

1-1/2 c flour; 1/2 c raw sugar;1/4 c unsweetened dark chocolate cocoa powder; 1/2 tsp. baking powder; 1/2 tsp. sea salt; 1/2 cup loosley packed chocolate mint leaves and 1/2 c pepermint leaves ( you can use dried herbs, just use 1/2 amount as fresh); 1 c Semi-sweet choc. chips; 3eggs, lightly beaten; 6 tbls. unsalted butter; 1 tsp Vanilla extract(organic); 1/2 c raw sugar and 1/2 c powdered sugar( for rolling the cookie dough.

Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt, set aside; in food processer blend mint and sugar until it looks like wet sand; on lowest setting melt the chocolate and butter in a sauce pan, stir often to avoid scorching, remove, stir until completely melted, then pour into large bowl and add the mint sugar and stir.  When chocolate is cooled a little, add the eggs, vanilla and stir; add the dry ingredients to the chocolate mixture and mix then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour or longer ( I actually left them in for about 3 hours, worked ok, I think you could even leave it in the refer. overnight);  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees; then roll into small balls, using teaspoon or scoop, roll cookies in  raw sugar/granulated sugar first then into the powdered sugar, place on greased/sprayed cookie sheet, about an inch apart…bake for 10 -12 Minutes (depending on your oven)…Remove and let cool for 5 minutes then place on cooling rack…this should make about 3 dozen…..Have fun and enyoy…
