flat cookies? guessing those bakers didn't use real butter or maybe your baking soda was old?

These came out just perfect for me - the cookies were soft and chewy, and had that perfect soft cracked appearance, just like in the photo. To those who mentioned they came out flat, sometimes that is due to "old" leavening ingredients, and I'd suggest starting over with a brand new box of baking soda. That often fixes the problem of flat cookies! If your baking soda is more than about 6 months old it doesn't work as well in recipes. The only reason I didn't rate this recipe 5 stars is that it only made 3 dozen for me, not 4 dozen as the recipe stated. Not a big deal but for an Easter party or baby shower I might want to double the recipe.

A cute, easy, basic cookie with a great buttery, minty payoff. Preferred the mouthfeel of biting into while the mint was still a little soft up to an hour or so after cooling.

Francine, The pastel mints are typically found in the bulk candy section of a supermarket, or at a candy counter. You could even check a candy store. They are often called pastel mints or mint meltaways.

I would love to try this recipe but am unable to fine the pastel "kisses". I have searched "mint meltaway candy" and the search yields dipped candies that are not appropriate. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
