Andes Mint Cookies


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you are all wearing green, so there will be no unwanted kissing or pinching going on. Today is actually a girl in my church’s birthday, so I decided to make these cookies to drop by her house later. I love how chewy and soft these cookies are. Who doesn’t love a little mint cookie in their life. I love mint, and these actually reminded me of eating mint chocolate chip ice cream. Which is one of my top favorite ice creams? This recipe could actually be used for Christmas time as well. I thought that you could die them red or green, or just leave them not colored. They would be cute and yummy no matter what. This recipe makes a lot so share with your friends and neighbors. Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day, and celebrate safely.
