These are probably my favorite cookies ever. I love chocolate. I love mint. I love Andes. Put it all together and I love, love, love these cookies.
Like any good cookie recipe worth a dime, start with some butter and sugar.
Cream it together real good and add some eggs.
So I don't.
I usually eat several.
But then I come to my senses and remember the cookies.
Chop them up very roughly.
Does anyone eat cookie dough?
I don't. I don't happen to like cookie dough. But this dough makes me want to like it. Maybe one day I'll give in.
But, for now, I prefer this cookie dough in its intended form.
