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

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix Butter flavored Crisco, cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Beat at medium speed until well blended.
  4. Mix flour into creamed mixture at a low speed until blended.
  5. Fold in mint chocolate chips and chopped walnuts.
  6. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto un-greased baking sheet. Or onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. 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.
  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.
