I found this recipe on the back of Andes Crème de Menthe Baking Chips. I made a few small changes and am really pleased with the results! These cookies taste very similar to the Girl Scouts Thin Mint Cookies!

Andes baking chips were not available in the grocery store I frequent so chopped up Andes mints instead. I used about 28 mints ( 7 oz ) and it was plenty. Baked them for 10 mins and they still came out very soft, the way my son likes his cookies. I addes a little salt, and that was the only alteration I made. Thank you for posting. They were delicious.
