    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This little cookie has a sweet minty treat inside - an Andes mint. Oh, favorite after-dinner mint. You can't get any more rich and creamy than those. These are excellent for a cookie tray at Christmas or a gift basket for a friend's birthday.

      These are good. Very minty. If I make them again I think I will use 1/2 of a mint in each cookie.

      I made these for a mint lover but when I gave it to her she scrunched her nose up a bit. So maybe I did something wrong. Oh well I am not a mint lover so they were just ok to me.

      this recipe was really good! I made the cookies and took them to an office party. They were gone by the end of the evening with many compliments from my office co-workers. If you are not an mint fan than I suggest using plain hershey bars with the same size chocolate pieces as the andes mint. Very good!
