Ingredients:  
1 stick butter
1 stick margarine
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
2 T. water
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
60 layered chocolate-mint candies or chocolate mint wafers if you can find them

Directions:
Directions:
Beat butter; add the sugars, baking soda, and salt. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs, water and vanilla until combined. Add the flour. Cover dough with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours or until dough is easy to handle. Cut mints crosswise into halves or if using wafers, place 2 together. Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Flatten slightly and place the mint halves on top of each other in the center of the dough. Shape dough up and around mints until mints are covered. Place cookies two inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Cool on wire racks.

Hint: I frost the cookies with the same frosting I use on the sugar cookie cut-outs and then drizzle with 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate pieces melted with 1 tsp. shortening. It makes a nice cookie to add to a Christmas plate. I used chocolate mint wafers found in candy making area at Michaels.
