Hidden Mint Cookies

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Manami

This is Paula's Recipe from the Food Network. These are lovely and quick, they start with refrigerated dough! They are ready in less than a half-hour. Great for last minute company or for guests who drop by for coffee. Make a couple dozen at a time.

I used Keebler Chocolate Covered Mint Cookies. Loved the combination of textures- the smooth soft sugar cookie dough with the slightly crispy mint cookie center. Very pretty, minty cookies. I saw Paula making these on t.v. and have wanted to try them since! Thanks for posting!
