York Peppermint Chocolate Cookies

A very windy day and the sun is having trouble with some pesky clouds that keep covering it.  I'm going to have fun trying to grill in a little while.  Here's a treat I made to take into work tomorrow.

York Peppermint Chocolate Cookies

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs , lightly beaten
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup dark cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup York pieces

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in vanilla and eggs.  Gradually add in dry ingredients.  Hand fold in York pieces and scoop on to parchment lined baking sheets.

Yield: 5 dozen
