A really good sugar cookie with a mint surprise! My Mom would make these for special occasions. I also remember feeling special when sharing these when she had her afternoon tea...they are really yummy! )Time est. does not include the dough chilling)

You are all probably too young to realize that "Starlight" is the brand of mint used in the cookies! They have them at Walmart and Walgreens and Target and on Amazon and Jet.
