MAKES: 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 :-("

"Not sure why this recipe is contest winning. It was quick and easy, but there was no "wow" this is a great tasting cookie. Will not make again."
