Simply Delicious Minty Cookies

Shelley Simpson


Everyone who knows me, knows that I don't bake. So when I do, it is a very simple/easy recipe! I have been making these for over 25 years. It is a very rich/decadent cookie and taste like you've put a lot of work into it!
*My picture...just finished baking these for my family's dessert tonight.

How to Make Simply Delicious Minty Cookies


  • 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.
