Mint Truffle Cookie Butter Cookies

For some reason the chocolate and mint combination always tastes best at this time of year. It was so hard to stop at three of these cookies! The chocolate mint really shines and is complimented by the flavorful cookie butter dough. Cookie butter is delicious on its own, but it's worth saving a half cup for this recipe!

1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup cookie butter
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
36 unwrapped Hershey Mint Truffle Kisses

Preheat oven to 350°.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
Mix the butter and cookie butter until smooth. Add in sugars. Then stir in the egg.
Gradually add in the flour mixture. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets. Slight press one mint truffle Kiss into each cookie.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
Let sit on cookie sheet to cool for 5 minutes. Then move to cooling rack to cool completely.
Yields 3 Dozen
