1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
2 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon mint extract
2 to 3 drops green food color
1. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until dough forms. Divide dough in half. Stir cocoa into one half. Stir flour, mint extract and food color into other half. Place chocolate dough on 17×12-inch sheet waxed paper. Top dough with second sheet of waxed paper. Roll dough to form 12×7-inch rectangle. Repeat with green colored dough.
2.Remove top sheet of waxed paper from both doughs. Using waxed paper to lift green dough, invert onto chocolate dough. Gently press layered dough to 14×8-inch rectangle. Remove top sheet waxed paper. Use bottom sheet waxed paper to help roll doughs up together tightly, beginning at long side. Wrap tightly in waxed paper; freeze at least 2 hours or until very firm.
3. Heat oven to 375°F. Unwrap dough; cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until set. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
