2 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour milk (you can use 2 T. cider vinegar added to 1 cup whole milk)

1 cup boiling water
4 cups flour
For the filling
2 egg whites, beaten
1 cup Crisco
1/4 cup flour
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
several drops green food coloring
In a mixing bowl, mix first 8 cookie batter ingredients together.
Add cocoa to boiling water. Stir together until cocoa dissolves. Add to cookie mixture.
Add flour, one cup at a time. Chill the dough.
Drop on cookie sheets, bake at 350�F. Cookies will be puffy and slightly firm to touch on top. Cool cookies completely.
