Minty Middle Treasures

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This little cookie has a sweet minty treat inside - an Andes mint. Oh, favorite after-dinner mint. You can't get any more rich and creamy than those. These are excellent for a cookie tray at Christmas or a gift basket for a friend's birthday.

These are good. Very minty. If I make them again I think I will use 1/2 of a mint in each cookie.
