I had to flatten these cookies a little before baking, they did not flatten out on their own as much as I would prefer.

I have been on a mint kick in my baking lately. I made Andes Mint Cookies awhile back and next week I will be sharing my Oreo surprise cupcakes made with mint Oreos and Andes mints.
