12 of 12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Andes Mint Cookies

We’ve had 12 days of an amazing variety of Christmas cookies…but sadly all good things have to come to end. Thanks to all of the talented bloggers who participated in this virtual cookie exchange! I’m ready to bake up a storm for my neighbors and then run to the nearest fast food place and stuff my face with some salty fries. Because that’s how I do things…I like to balance out my sweet and salty!

This cookie was the result of trying two new recipes that failed miserably. It just wasn’t my day and I had a party to go to in an hour and nothing to bring. Thank goodness for this recipe that my friend Jenni gave me that is quick and easy.

My favorite part about eating at Olive Garden is when the waiter leaves the check along with some Andes mints at the end of the meal. Sometimes, if the waiter is in a good mood, you might get lucky and get a couple of extra mints. Tell me I’m not the only one who searches for the basket of Andes mints on my way out of the restaurant hoping to score an extra handful of mints!

    I get a pack of these every Christmas from either my mother, sister or husband.
    I was going to make chocolate crinkles, but these look better for the Christmas cookie tray. Thanks, Christy!

    Once when we went to Olive Garden, the waiter brought us an entire plateful of mints. I stashed them in my purse then we went to the movies and nibbled on them throughout. so much goodness.
