Thin Mint Cookies

 This week I am posting a cookie recipe EVERYDAY!!!  I know...I'm excited too!  So tell all your friends to come over and introduce them to Swanky Pear!!  I need more followers:)  I figured that many of you have been invited to a Cookie Swap and you are wondering WHAT COOKIE SHOULD I BRING??  Hopefully this week will help you decide.

So this first cookie is kind of embarrassing to even post because they are so simple.  But let me tell you.  These will be a favorite to all who bite into them!  I brought these to a cookie swap one year and everyone loved them!  Even if you drop them off as a neighbor gift...make them look all pretty...its all about the packaging people!  
This is just an old formula can that I decorated with paper, put the cookies in a cute bag and tie with ribbon.  A 5 minute project!

Thin Mint Cookies

Ritz Crackers
Andes Mints (you can get them in the baking isle next to chocolate chips)
Crushed Candy Canes

Lay some parchment paper on a cookie sheet.  Then melt your Andes Mints.  The amount is up to you, depending on how many you are going to make.  I use the whole bag.  Start with 30 seconds, stir, and then do 15 seconds after that until they are melted.  Start dipping your Ritz Crackers in the chocolate, scrap off extra on bottom and lay on parchment paper.  Sprinkle with candy cane BEFORE it dries.  Let them set in the fridge until set up.  Enjoy!

  1. Those cookies are the best! I have 2 swaps coming up. Your PB cookies are going to the first and I'm still deciding on the 2nd. I'll be excited for all your posts! Oh, I still need your sugar cookie recipe. :)
