Andes Mint Cookies

READY IN: 24hrs 9mins
Recipe by Kim_150

These cookies are light and flaky, and delicious still warm from the oven. They were a huge hit during the holidays, and one batch made enough to bring to multiple parties. They freeze well, and can be made soft again with a few minutes in a warm oven.
