Heat convection oven to 300°F (standard oven: 350°F). Lightly spray sheet pans with vegetable cooking spray. Place parchment paper on prepared sheet pans.
Mix together shortening, brown sugar and water in 20 qt. bowl of mixer fitted with paddle attachment on medium speed until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, mixing until fully incorporated. Blend together flour, HERSHEY'S Cocoa, salt and baking soda in large bowl. Gradually add to sugar mixture, mixing on low speed just until blended. Stir in YORK Minis Peppermint Patties. Using #50 scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart on prepared sheet pans.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes* or until cookies are set. Cookies will appear soft and moist (do not over bake). Cool 10 minutes; remove from sheet pans to wire rack. Cool completely.
Step 3: If using convection oven, rotate pans one-half turn (180°) about 4 minutes of baking.
