"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Dump all cookie ingredients in kitchen mixer, adding the water a little bit at a time until the dough forms. Cover w/ saran wrap & chill for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly flour your counter top, roll out vanilla wafer thin. You can use a spice jar cover to cut them out the right size, or a small cookie cutter. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool before dipping.
Combine chocolate chips and shortening in a double boiler, melt slowly, once creamy add peppermint extract.

Stir well and dip each cookie as desired, cool on cookie sheet lined with wax paper, may place in the fridge to set.
