Surprise Package Cookies

READY IN: 3hrs
Recipe by lucid501

These cookies have Andes mints tucked inside them, plus melted chocolate on top...sometimes I also add a bit of cocoa to the dough to make double chocolate cookies. Cooking time includes 2 hours for chilling dough. ZWT 3: U.S. (Andes mints)

These are a regular on my holiday cookie tray! Everyone enjoys these and they're easy to make (except for the unwrapping of all the Andes mints)! Thanks for posting this popular treat.

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Beat in vanilla.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, and gradually add to creamed mixture. Cover and refrigerate dough for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
  3. With floured hands, shape tablespoons of dough around 42 candies (you will have rectangular cookies).
  4. Place cookies 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  5. In a saucepan or microwave, melt remaining candies and drizzle over tops of cookies.
