Peppermint Chocolate Cookies

This is a cookie that wants to be a peppermint patty. Ok, not quite because it has a crunch factor. But peppermint and chocolate have both been represented; then there is a crispy cookie involved. I hope you like it.

1 tablespoon mint, diced
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon mint extract
