All for one, and one for all

Actually, I'm all for eating them all. If you want to stray from the tried-and-true chocolate chip cookie, try these minty Musketeer cookies. They are gooey and chewy and very good. The minty white part ends up kind of like a melted marshmallow. And, of course, there's some chocolate, because chocolate makes everything better.


1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour
2 8-packs fun-size mint 3 Musketeers bars, coarsely chopped

Beat shortening and butter with granulated sugar. Add brown sugar and baking soda, then eggs and vanilla. Add flour. Stir in chopped candy. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool for just a minute, but remove from pan to wire rack while cookies are still soft and hot. If they sit too long, they will really stick.
