Mint Surprise Cookies


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup margarine or butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 bag of Andes Mints (in the green wrapper)
  • about 60 pecan halves



First, take each mint and cut into thirds. Set aside. Cut enough mints for about 5 dozen cookies.

In large bowl combine sugar, brown sugar, margarine, eggs, water and vanilla. Mix well. Lightly spoon flour into a measuring cup, level off. Stir in flour, soda, and salt, mix well. Chill dough at least 2 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Enclose each mint piece in slightly less than a tablespoon full of dough. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Top each with a pecan half, pressing down lightly to slightly flatten the cookie (Make sure that the mint is still covered!) Bake at 375 degrees F for 7 - 9 minutes or until light golden brown. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Note: You can cut your mints in half, but you will have to make bigger cookies. Also, I have found that smaller pieces of mint give the cookie just the right hint of mint and chocolate without making it overpowering.
