Prep: 1 hr 15 min
Start To Finish: 1 hr 45 min
Makes 4 dozen cookies

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker® sugar cookie mix
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
  • Red and green food colors
  • 16 thin rectangular crême de menthe candies, cut into thirds
  • Assorted Betty Crocker® colored sprinkles, sugars, decors and decorating gels
  • Heat oven to 375°F.

  • In medium bowl, stir cookie mix, melted butter, egg and flour until soft dough forms.

  • Divide dough into thirds.

  • Tint one-third red and one-third green with food colors; leave one-third plain.

  • Keep dough covered tightly until ready to use.

  • On floured surface, roll each third of dough until 1/8 inch thick.

  • For round cookies, cut with 1 1/2-inch cookie cutter; for square cookies, cut into 1 1/2-inch squares using sharp knife. (Dip cutter or knife in flour for easier cutting.)

  • On ungreased cookie sheet, place half the cookies 1 inch apart.

  • Place 1 candy piece on center of each cookie; top with another cookie.

  • Gently press edges together to seal, using tines of fork.

  • To decorate before baking, sprinkle cookies with colored sprinkles, sugars or decors as desired.

  • Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are light brown.

  • Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

  • Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Decorate with gels as desired.
Variation: Instead of the crême de menthe candies, use one of the following in each cookie: Piece of a milk chocolate candy bar (1.55 ounces), separated into small rectangles, each cut into thirds (larger baking or candy bars will be too thick); Small round chocolate-covered creamy mint; 1/4 teaspoon toffee bits.
