Andes Mint Pillow Cookies

Lori Younger


***** 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


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