I am all about simple recipes and this one is as simple as it can get when it comes to baking. Who doesn’t love the Girl Scout’s Thin Mint cookies?! Good thing Nabisco makes a version close (their Grasshopper cookies!) AND, who doesn’t love a good sugar cookie?! This recipe combines the two into one delicious cookie. Be warned – they will go fast!
2 (18-ounce) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, sliced 1/4-inch thin
14-ounce package chocolate mint wafers
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, or enough to cover top of cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Slightly grease a cookie sheet.
Place slices of sugar cookies on sheet, about 2 to 3 inches apart.
Top each with a chocolate wafer.
Cover wafer with another slice of cookie dough.
Brush dough with a beaten egg.
Press nuts into top of dough.
Bake for about 10 – 12 minutes.
* Keep sugar cookie dough well chilled between batches for easier slicing.
