Recipe Exchange: 2 Recipes for Andes Mint Cookies

Article excerpt

A few months ago Carol Wiedl was looking for a recipe for chocolate cookies topped with an Andes Mint.

We heard from several readers with recipes for Carol. First, Charlotte Fry from St. Charles submitted a recipe for Layered Mint Candy. "They taste just like the real thing. It makes a small batch, so I cut them pretty little."

Carole Meier of St. Louis also sent in a recipe for Andes Mint Cookies. Her recipe uses actual Andes mints and she recommends having the mints unwrapped and stacked so that you can put them on the cookies as fast as possible, giving it more time for the melting chocolate.


* The holidays are over, but I missed my favorite cookies "PFEFFERNYSS." Store-bought ones are not the same. Maybe someone has a recipe that is like these "German" cookies. R.D. Westermann, Kirkwood

* I was wondering if you could find me the original recipe of the St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake. Marcia Mohrmann, St. Louis

* I am looking for the house salad dressing recipe that was used at Bengoni's Restaurant, which is now closed. The location was on Woodson Road in Overland. I've been told that they purchased the dressing from somewhere? It is delicious. Donna Bauer, Wentzville

* I'm looking for a coffee cake recipe similar to Tippin's. Cheryl Wolf, St. Louis
