Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies

I had these Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies for the first time a few years ago when R.'s mom made them, and I was instantly hooked.  Turns out the recipe is right on the packaging of the Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips, but for the life of me I was never able to find these baking chips anywhere in the Washington DC area where I used to live.  It wasn't until I moved to Pittsburgh that I finally found them - at Walmart, of all places.  (R.'s mom also buys them at her local Walmart, and Walmart remains the only store where I have seen them.  If you can't find them in a store, you can order them online.)  When I made a huge batch of these Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies just before Christmas last year, everybody raved about them, so when I had to bring cookies for a social a couple weeks ago, I knew I could count on these.

Once again, these cookies turned out great.  If you like chocolate and mint, you'll love these cookies!
