Simply Delicious Minty Cookies
Family Tested & Approved
butter flavored crisco
(8 oz.) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
granulated white sugar
firmly packed brown sugar
mint chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix Butter flavored Crisco, cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
Beat at medium speed until well blended.
Mix flour into creamed mixture at a low speed until blended.
Fold in mint chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto un-greased baking sheet. Or onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. (Depending on your oven)Cool 2-5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack.
**Because this is a dense dough made with cream cheese instead of eggs, it does not spread out flat.
***NOTE: I store them in an air tight container in the fridge after they have cooled. Tastes even better the next day. And they freeze well if you choose to freeze them.
