TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min. + cooling
MAKES: 24 servings


  • 3/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons creme de menthe
  • 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips


  1. In a large bowl, cream margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
  2. Preheat oven to 325°. Roll each portion of dough between two sheets of waxed paper to 1/4-in. thickness (dough will be soft). Cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 7-8 minutes or until set. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  3. In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar and enough creme de menthe to reach a spreading consistency. Spread evenly on bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips; stir until smooth. Frost cookies. Yield: about 2 dozen.
