Mock Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookies

"These are good, but not really the same as Thin Mints, but in a pinch they work. Thought this was an interesting recipe on its own."

    I also added more mint flavor to mint flavored chips. The flavor was there , I had a problem with the crispness

    We thought these were awesome! I actually found this recipe elsewhere and came to see if anyone had posted. They are absolutely delish! I used a 1/2 tsp peppermint extract instead of peppermint oil. We liked that little bit of saltiness the crackers added. I will be making these again. Next time though I might try 1/2 Tbsp of crisco - just because I never use crisco. I had to go out and buy a small can as it is not something we keep in the house. We store them in the freezer and eat them right out of the freezer. The fridge might be good too if you don't like them frozen.
