Paula Deen's Hidden Mint Cookies

see video here

18-ounce roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough, sliced 1/4-inch thin
14-ounce package chocolate mint wafers
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped walnuts or pecans, or enough to cover top of cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Slightly grease a cookie sheet. Place slices of sugar cookies on sheet, about 2 to 3 inches apart. Top each with a chocolate wafer. Cover wafer with another slice of cookie dough. Brush dough with a beaten egg. Press nuts into top of dough. Bake for about 10 minutes.
In my opinion: These cookies tasted great right out of the oven but a few days later they were as hard as a rock. I did not brush them with egg or press nuts into the top because I was in a hurry but I don't think that's the reason they hardened. I will make them again, I will just make as many as we know we will eat.
