Why this Recipe Works

When it comes to chewy chocolate chip cookies, sometimes you just want a shortcut.

  • Uses refrigerated cookie dough
  • Mint buttercream filling
  • Cookie Sandwiches
  • Can be dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles for a holiday treat

What I love about today’s recipe is you can make your own chocolate chip cookie dough, or reach for that refrigerated tube of dough instead.

There’s a reason refrigerator cookies are so popular. They are soft and chewy and easy to make too.

Today, we gave them a makeover with a sweet, minty buttercream filling!

Easy Instructions

Today’s recipe is not only good, it’s great! I used Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookie dough (in the rolls) to make this recipe even easier. Everyone needs some time saving steps every once in awhile. I used a 1 tablespoon scoop and made mini cookies. 

I then whipped up a batch of creamy Mint buttercream frosting. When the cookies were cooled, I piped a little frosting between two like-sized cookies. Oh my word these are delicious.

I used this easy cookie dough in these Oreo Stuffed cookies, remember how fun these are???

Comments & Reviews

  1. I love the look of these. They sound delicious any time of year but particularly cute for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. Thanks for the great recipe!

  2. Did you use mint or peppermint extract. The recipe says mint extract but I thought that had a spearmint taste. I could be wrong. Would you please clarify for me because I don’t want to use the wrong extract.

  3. Love this story, such a wonderful and amazing surprise – it’s so nice to hear that there are still so many kind people. These cookies look amazing, I’m sure the snow angels would have loved them. Love the mint buttercream and the sprinkles make them super festive and adorable!

  4. Mmm, mint buttercream frosting! I might skip the cookies and go straight for the frosting!

  5. Love the idea of the good angels shoveling driveways 🙂 These cookies look perfect for St. Pattys day 🙂
