Servings 36


  • 1 3/4 cup sugar, plus 1/2 cup for coating
  • 3/4 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 4 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Nature's Yoke egg
  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 drops green food coloring (optional)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Cream 1 3/4 cups sugar, butter, cream cheese, baking powder, salt and extracts together until well blended. Mix in egg. Add 2 cups flour, then mix on low speed until incorporated.
  • Divide dough roughly in half and transfer one half to another bowl. Mix food coloring, if using, and 1/2 cup flour into half of the dough. Mix cocoa powder into other half of dough.
  • Put remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl. Pinch off about 1 teaspoon of green dough and roll into a small ball; repeat with remaining green dough. Do the same with the chocolate dough.
  • To make each cookie, line up 4 small balls in a row, alternating colors: green, chocolate, green, chocolate. Squish them all together and roll lightly into 1 big ball. Roll in sugar; place on greased baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 13-15 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
