These cookies are just store-bought sugar cookie dough and junior mints with sprinkles. That. is. it. They taste great too, I love the combination of vanilla, chocolate and peppermint. Tasty and festive and pretty to look at, too!
I had to do some experimenting with the baking times and for me the trick was 7 and a half minutes (yes, 7 was too short and 8 was too long) at 325 degrees.
Besides Junior Mints, you could probably stick any mini-candy in the middle of these and they'd come out good.
Have a good week, Sweets!
