eat. christmas mint cookies.

During our “ThanksChristmas” holiday this year, my sister-in-law made some pretty amazing chocolate cookies. They were so good that I didn’t pause long enough to take a picture of the festive treats! Have a glass of milk or bowl of ice cream ready.  Santa might like these too!
