Creme de Menthe Thins

Letta Meinen


These reminded me of the Girl Scout Thin Mints. I worked for the Girl Scouts for six years back in my younger days but always remember how those Thin Mints were a favorite of many.

I am now baking cookies for many of activities that I am involved with. I am now 86 and love to experiment with new cookie recipes. This one is a favorite.

Use this to frost each cookie with creme de menthe chocolate then let cool for frosting to set. Store cookies in covered containers. These are delicate and delicious mintyh cookies. They will go fast.
