Starlight Mint Cookies Recipe

I recently spent several weeks in a local hospital recovering from an illness. While I was in there, I met a lady who gave me this fabulous recipe for these easy to make cookies. Although I am allergic to walnuts and didn't try them...my hubby did and loved them!

Now that I am home again...once I get stronger, I will be making them for him.

Starlight Mint Cookies Recipe

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened (not margarine)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 (6 1/2 ounce) pkgs. chocolate mint candy wafers
walnut halves
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs

Combine all ingredients, except for the candy wafers and walnuts in a large mixing bowl. Blend this mixture well with an electric mixer until combined for about 2-3 minutes.

Drop by the teaspoonful 2" apart onto an ungreased baking sheet. Press a chocolate mint candy wafer on top of each cookie and then cover with another teaspoonful of cookie dough. Top each cookie with a walnut half.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 9-12 minutes or until done. Let cool before serving and store in an air-tight canister.

These cookies sound good. Reminds me of Girl Guide mint cookies.

I'm not a walnut fan so I would omit them.
