***** These also can be made with Andes Cherry Jubilee or Andes Toffee Crunch Thins.*****

I made these for a baby shower, and I know the instructions may look hard, or like a lot to follow, but once you get going its easy! I added food coloring to the dough to make them pink, her baby colors are pink,brown and green. :)

Like in my other cookie recipes, I use a baking stone and they turn out amazing as well, although, I suggest leaving them on the stone a bit longer than a pan to cool.

***An easy way to keep cookies soft a few days longer, put a piece of bread in the container with them.***

How to Make Andes Mint Pillow Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, egg and vanilla. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms.
  4. Divide dough in half.
  5. On well-floured surface, roll half of the dough into a 14 x 9-inch rectangle. Arrange mints evenly on dough, forming 7 rows of 7.
  6. Between 2 sheets of wax paper, roll remaining dough into a second 14 x 9-inch rectangle.
  7. Remove top sheet of wax paper and discard.
  8. Carefully turn second rectangle over mint-topped dough, matching edges.
  9. Remove remaining wax paper. Using a pizza cutter or scalloped-edge pastry wheel, cut dough evenly between mints. Gently press edges of pillows to seal.
  10. Place pillows 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  11. Bake at 400° degrees for 7 to 10 minutes, or until edges are light brown. Cool completely before storing.
