Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 cup fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 1-2/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon shortening

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. Stir in mint. Shape into two 8-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
