White Chocolate Mint Chocolate Cookies

I can never make it through the holidays without several mint chocolate or peppermint chocolate treats! Here is one to kick off the season. It is not overly minty, and the mint with white chocolate combination balances nicely.
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup mint chocolate chips
3/4 cup white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In large bowl, cream together brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla and egg. Gradually mix in cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda. Stir in mint chips and white chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoons of dough onto cookies sheets.
Bake 11 to 15 minutes or until edges begin to brown slightly. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Yields 2 dozen
