Treat your guests with these mint chocolate cookies - a flavorful dessert.

Ingredients

1
cup granulated sugar
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
3/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
tablespoons water
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
eggs
3
cups Pillsbury BEST® all-purpose flour
1
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon salt
60
thin rectangular crème de menthe chocolate candies (from three 4.67-oz packages), unwrapped
60
walnut halves or pieces

Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, beat sugars, butter, water, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until blended. On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda and salt until well blended. Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours for easier handling.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. Using about 1 tablespoon dough, press dough around each chocolate candy to cover completely. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Top each with walnut half.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
Tips  

At the first-ever Bake-Off® Contest awards ceremony, an excited Laura Rott received a $10,000 second prize for her cookies with the surprise of a chocolate mint hidden inside. With some time to spare before her trip back home, Laura tucked the check into her purse and set out to see more of the sights of New York City. Unfortunately, she had another surprise: An enterprising pick pocket managed to purloin her prize check! No harm, though, because Bake-Off® Contest officials canceled her original check and re-issued a new one. What’s no surprise is that Laura’s cookies have become a classic.
