Some say these are the best cookies they’ve ever had! Such a cinch to put together with just five ingredients, and so easy to vary. Stir in your favorite baking chips and change up the decorations to suit any holiday. See why they’re the best? —Sheila Sporn, Houston, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 15 min./batch + cooling YIELD:48 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (16-1/2 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/3 cups Andes creme de menthe baking chips
  • Green candy coating disks and sprinkles, optional

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat cookie dough and flour until blended and dough is softened. Beat in egg. Add cream cheese; beat until smooth. Stir in baking chips. (Dough will be soft.)
  • 2. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 11-13 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. If decorating cookies, melt candy coating in a microwave. Cut a small hole in the tip of a pastry bag or in a corner of a food-safe plastic bag; insert a small round pastry tip. Fill bag with melted coating. Pipe designs onto cookies; decorate with sprinkles.
    Freeze option: Freeze undecorated cookies in freezer containers. To use, thaw and decorate as desired. Yield: 4 dozen.

"I followed the recipe exactly and the cookies came out perfectly. I did rotate the pan in my oven due to heat inversions. I did not bother frosting these since by themselves the cookies are very rich."

"I used the copy of the recipe from the magazine, which did not include the added flour. The cookies turned out very cakelike, with a slimy texture the next day. Not a keeper for us."

"I have made this several times since Christmas. Can't find Andes' chips so I just crush actual Andes...it takes extra time to unwrap all of them but definitely worth it :) Even my husband who doesn't like mint had quite a few. ;) I take them to work and family events knowing I'm bringing something unique."

"Loved these cookies! I couldn't keep my mits off of them for the work cookie exchange this last x-mas! Then again, I dolove mint flavored sweets.

Not sure how the batter was runny for some. I followed the directions exactly and they came out fine."

"The batter is runny, like pancake batter. I have it in the fridge to set up. Does anyone at TOH test any of these recipes???

The raw dough taste's weird."

"The taste was not worth the effort, and the dough was easy. The dough has a loose consistency. And I read the reviews before making them. What I found happening was at 350deg they would burn on the outside before the inside got done. I tried turning the heat down to 300 but then it depended on what cookie sheet I used whether they were done on the inside before getting too brown. Had it figured out by the last batch of 10. And they were not that tasty :-("

"These cookies are delicate and I needed to bake 14 min, but they are really delicious!

It's better to drop onto a cookie sheet using a teaspoon rather than a tablespoon as they should be a bit smaller. I was able to make 40 cookies by not making them too big. All in all, they are great. I'm planning on making two more batches for Christmas."

"Like the other reviews, by adding the creamcheese, it does make it more "cake-like", than a cookie. But with that said, the taste was really, really good!

Also, very easy to assemble. My only issue, I made them too big, and got only 3 dozen. :-D I did love these. The Andes chips made a nice touch instead of mint extract."

"These cookies are more cake like than I like but they were very good and easy. The sugar cookie roll I bought was a 30oz instead of 15 so I double the cream cheese and cookies. I used half with the mints and the other half with toffee pieces. I preferred the toffee pieces but both were good."

"I only had the large sugar cookie roll which is 30 oz. I cut the roll in half, added the creme cheese and egg and then added about 1/4 cup of coconut to add a bit more density to make up for the 1 oz. of missing cookie dough. I also used the holiday chocolate chips and they were absolutely delicious!!"
