Who here loves cookies?!

I’ve discussed this before, but my mom would have fresh, warm cookies waiting for us after school on a regular basis. She LOVES to bake, and she loves trying out new recipes, so we were pretty spoiled as kids. I think my kids are pretty spoiled as well since I’m making treats almost every week. One of the treats we recently tried out were these Mint Blossoms from Land O Lakes. We have always loved the Mint Meltaways so I knew they would be great on top of a cookie. I had to try them and the family decided they were DELICIOUS!! I had to agree. They are a soft and chewy sugar cookie with the delicious mint candy on top. What’s not to love, right?!

Here’s the simple recipe:

I like my cookies ultra soft and tend to under-bake them so they stay soft. 😉

Be sure to add your candy as soon as they come out of the oven.

YUMMY!!

These cookies were delicious and remind me of the classic Kiss cookies that you stick a Hershey’s Kiss on top of. We have always loved these mint meltaways, so they were the perfect addition to these chewy, soft sugar cookies.

  1. Looking for a chocolate cookie version of this recipe. My mother had a chocolate cookie recipe using melt away mints as frosting. The chocolate came from cocoa powder and melted semisweet chocolate chips. The cookies were more crispy/chewy. After they came out of the oven a mint was placed on top and allowed to soften. The softened mint was then spread with a knife. Very pretty as a Christmas cookie. I don’t have mom’s recipe and I am looking for a similar recipe.

    1. I haven’t tried this, but you could possibly add cocoa powder in step 3, to make them chocolatey. Then melt the mints to spread around. Now, I haven’t made them like that, but it could possibly work. Here is a recipe to try, minus the marshmallows and you can add mint to the frosting…https://lilluna.com/chocolate-marshmallow-meltaways/ or here is another one, but you could do the colored mints, instead of andes mints. https://lilluna.com/andes-mint-cookies/. Hope those help! Thank you!
