Starlight Mint Surprise Cookie
Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Blend in eggs, water and vanilla; beat well. Add dry ingredients; mix thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Enclose each chocolate mint candy wafer in about 1 tablespoon of chilled dough. Place on greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Top each with a walnut half.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
Makes 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
Times testing note: This recipe was a $10,000 winner in the 1949 Pillsbury Bake-Off. It looks like a plain cookie, but the mint inside lends a nice surprise.
