Yield

Makes about 2-1/2 dozen sandwich cookies

Ingredients

1 package (4.67 ounces) chocolate crème de menthe candy wafers, divided
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
Melted chocolate and/or melted white chocolate tinted green (optional)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside. Chop 8 candy wafers to measure about 1/3 cup. Combine flour, salt and baking soda in medium bowl.
  2. Beat butter and sugars in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well blended. Add flour mixture; beat just until blended. Stir in chopped candy wafers.
  3. Shape dough by level teaspoonfuls into balls; place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  5. For filling, place remaining candy wafers in medium microwavable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds; stir. Microwave at additional 30-second intervals until candy is melted and smooth. Beat cream cheese in medium bowl until fluffy. Add melted candy; beat until well blended.
  6. Spread small amount of filling on bottom of 1 cookie; top with second cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling. Drizzle sandwiches with melted chocolate and/or tinted melted white chocolate, if desired. Let stand until set.
