  1. 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1 Eggland's Best Egg
  4. 2 teaspoons mint extract
  5. 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 12 drops red food coloring
  9. 12 drops green food coloring
  10. 1-1/2 cups white baking chips
  11. Crushed mint candies
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and extracts. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well.
  2. Set aside half of the dough. Divide remaining dough in half; add green food coloring to one portion and red food coloring to the other. Wrap dough separately in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until easy to handle.
  3. Divide green and red dough into 24 portions each. Divide plain dough into 48 portions. Roll each into a 4-in. rope. Place each green rope next to a white rope; press together gently and twist. Repeat with red ropes and remaining white ropes. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  4. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool for 2 minutes before carefully removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. In a microwave, melt white chips; stir until smooth. Dip cookie ends into melted chips; allow excess to drip off. Sprinkle with crushed candies and place on waxed paper. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: 4 dozen.
