    These are our favorite cookies in the whole world. The chocolate that you melt on the top does not have to be mint either we did it with peanut butter cups and it was delicious or just regular chocolate.

  • You can substitute sugar with applesauce and cinnamon in cakes.

  • In most recipes, you can substitute Splenda for sugar with really good results.

  • Brown Sugar Cookies
    1 cup butter, softened
    1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
    1 large egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Decorator sugar
    Beat butter at medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add brown sugar, beating well. Add egg and vanilla, beating well.

    Combine flour, soda, and salt; add to butter mixture, beating just until blended.

    Roll dough to 1/4" thickness between two sheets of wax paper. Cut with 4" cookie cutters. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle cookies with decorator sugar.

    Bake at 350° for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cookies cool 1 minute on cookie sheets, and carefully transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

  • You can replace white sugar with brown in pretty much any recipe - it will affect the flavor a little, but not the outcome. Flavor will be a little richer. No need to have a special recipe.
