crème de menthe cookies

cookies galore
I've been wanting to make these for years but I could never find the Andes chips at the grocery store. Of course, upon finding them in November, I realized I could have just chopped up the Andes chocolates myself because that's basically what these are. For all mint chocolate lovers-- these cookies are a must. There's an essence of creme de menthe throughout the soft cookie which makes them a little extra perfect after a meal. And, when I gave a batch to my friends for Christmas, they asked if I had put crack in the cookies. I didn't... but yes, they're that good.
