“This recipe comes from a Betty Crocker cookie cookbook my aunt gave me for a birthday present when I was a kid. It was my first "grown up" cookbook, and little did she know, she started my collection! I like these because they use butter mints and give a mellow minty taste to the shortbread. Prep time includes chilling time.”
