Minttens Sandwich Cookies

Yield 1 dozen

Ingredients

  • Reynolds® Parchment Paper
  • Your Favorite Sugar Cookie Recipe or Mix
  • Red and green paste food colors
  • 1 1/3 cups mint flavored baking chips
  • 2 egg whites
  • Ribbon

How to Make It

  1. LINE 2 cookie sheets with Reynolds Parchment Paper; set aside.

    PREPARE your favorite recipe for sugar cookies. Halve dough and tint with food colors.

    PREHEAT oven following recipe. Roll out dough 1/8-inch thick between 2 lightly floured parchment paper sheets.

    CUT OUT 48 cookies with a mitten cookie cutter. Place 12 cookies 1-inch apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Use mini cookie cutters to cut out decorations.

    MELT mint baking chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Spread melted mint chips over cookies on the cookie sheets. Top each with another cookie cut-out. Place mini decorations on cookies. (To hold decorations in place, brush underside with egg whites beaten with a little water.) Repeat with remaining cut-out cookies.

    BAKE 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven; immediately make a small hole in each Mintten with a straw. Slide parchment with cookies onto a wire rack to cool. Tie two cookies together with ribbon to make a set.
