In the center of the cookies is hidden a delicious peppermint patty.
You can just barely see the outline in the photo.
Here's the recipe.....
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 Tbsp cold water
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 + 1/2cup + 2Tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 pkg small peppermint patties (bulk store is a great place to find these)
Combine butter, brown sugar, white sugar and egg together and mix well.
Stir in water and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Add to dough and mix well.
Chill dough for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Shape about 1 Tbsp dough around each peppermint patty, making sure the edges are sealed, and then place them about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for approximately 7-10 min. or till lightly browned in 400F oven. Makes about 15 cookies.
