Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies

OH my! These are amazing - if you love mint and chocolate together. This is adapted from my favorite cookie.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dry:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Wet:
8 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 brown sugar (Sometimes I will mix up the sugar amounts as long as I have 1.5 cups in the end.)
2 eggs, or equalivant (I use ener-g powdered egg replacer.)
1 Tbl. soymilk (If you feel your mixture is too dry. The texture of the margarine determines if it will be too dry or not)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring
1-4 Tablespoons liquid if it's too dry (soymilk works best)

Extra:
chocolate chips or any other thing you like in your cookie.
crushed up candy canes.

- Mix the dry. Mix the wet Add together. Add chocolate chips put in the fridge for awhile. (You don't always have to put it in the fridge.)
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Place your favorite sized dough ball on a sprayed cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle the tops with broken candy cane pieces.

Bake for 12 minutes.
(They may seem a bit under done, but they are best that way.)
Enjoy!
