1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons water
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 ounces Andes mints
Pecan halves

In a large bowl, cream sugars and butter or margarine. Add eggs, vanilla and water. Beat well. Mix flour, baking soda and salt well. Add gradually to egg mixture. Chill dough overnight (it is important that the dough be well chilled). Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Wrap each mint completely in cookie dough. Place 2" apart on lightly greased cookie sheets and put a nut half on top of each cookie. Bake 7-9 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool thoroughly on wire racks.

Would make this again.
These cookies are yummy and everyone loves them :-) The key to making them good is to make sure and wrap in a thin layer of dough as the dough swells a lot when baked. They look nice with the pecans on top. I will be making these again for sure! i would have given them 4.5 stars but there was no option for that. 4 stars
