Featured Pinch Tips Video
butter flavored crisco
(8 oz.) cream cheese, softened to room temperature
granulated white sugar
firmly packed brown sugar
mint chocolate chips
1Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2Mix Butter flavored Crisco, cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
3Beat at medium speed until well blended.
4Mix flour into creamed mixture at a low speed until blended.
5Fold in mint chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
6Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto un-greased baking sheet. Or onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
7Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. (Depending on your oven)Cool 2-5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a cooling rack.
8**Because this is a dense dough made with cream cheese instead of eggs, it does not spread out flat.
9***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.
