    • Just like Thin Mint, these cookies tastes better after being chilled in the freezer! At least that's how I eat thin mints haha

          • Tried it and loved them!

            Only I had to bake for 9-10 minutes, the first dozen I baked for 12 minutes, and wasn't watching them.. they got a little too crispy on the bottom. But bake times depend on the oven, so my only advice would be to watch them the first time to figure out what works best.

            Otherwise, these are absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing, Beckers!

              I'm so happy someone is actually trying them, because they are SO GOOOD! I like to freeze them, crush them up and sprinkle them on top of ice cream =P

              I'm glad you like them too!!

              • I can't know you Beckers.... we're done.... these cookies are going to be the death of me.

                Seriously, I can't wait to make them this weekend, and I'm totally going to freeze them! I LOVE THIN MINTS! But nothing is better than something home cooked!

                • I bought the ingredients for them today. I plan on making them on Saturday for hubby's friends for the UFC fight. I hoping they will be a hit! They sound sinful.

                  • The first batch came out about 10 minutes ago. Not only does my house smell like a gigantic girl scout thin mint box, but the cookies are DELICIOUS!

                    When my picky as ever 9 year old, who hates Thin Mints by the way, LOVES them, I know they gotta be good.

                    Hubby and company will be trying them shortly.

                    • YAY I'm so glad! I love these cookies so much and I've yet to find anyone who dislikes them. =]

                      • Seriously.... we do have to cut all ties! I made them..... the problem with them is that they're so super easy to make, and they're just to ddelicious to just have one of! They also make the house smell so so good!

                        Thank you for sharing this recipe.... it's awesome, and like LanaBear said, even those who aren't actual "thin mints" fans will fall for these!
