Andes Mint Cookies

I love mint and chocolate cookies!! 
There are one of my biggest weakness. Give me a package of mint Oreos and they will be gone the same day. It's just as bad with good mint chocolate chip ice cream. I just can't say no, they are just too delicious! Now my husband on the other hand thinks mint is only good for toothpaste and gum. He can be a strange fellow at times. I think he is missing out on some great treats! 
Yet, he likes Andes mints.....just not in cookies, explain that one??? 
These Andes mint cookies are so good!!! I could have eaten the whole batch.
I only got to eat one since I was taking them to a church function. I had to make sure they were edible before I let others have some. :)
 I had high hopes there would be some left over to take home so I could eat some with a glass a milk. When I went to get my container, it was empty. 
This made me more happy then if I there was some left over for me to enjoy later. I love it when people like I what make, it makes me truly happy inside. 
Try these cookies, you will love them!
