Creme de Menthe Cookies (with Andes mint chips!)

I've been making these cookies for a few years now, ever since I found out they made Andes Mint chips; and I've got to tell you, they're a huge hit. Sometimes I make these cookies chocolate to truly make them mint-chocolate cookies, but this time I made them plain, but the Andes Mint chips make these fabulous! It's a pretty basic cookie base that mixes up quickly and bakes up beautifully. On to the recipe and pictures!

Here are the cookies on the baking sheet- I always forget to take a picture of the batter!

And the cookies all baked up!

The finished cookies- Enjoy!

Savor it!

    Can't get Andes mints here ... but maybe peppermints which leads me to ... those brownies with the mint layer!

    or the Santa Fe Brownies!
