Chocolate Mint Thumbprint Cookies
I recently created an account on Twitter, I really wasn't sure how it worked or what it involved, but I soon found out and now I am addicted. Josh thinks I need professional help:) It is fun to "chat" with so many friends and everyone is so helpful. If I have a question, it is usually answered in minutes by a couple of different people. I think Twitter is broadening my horizons and expanding my knowledge:) See, it is a good thing!
I was on Twitter awhile ago and saw Dawn's tweet about some cookies she just made. Of course, I hurried over to her blog to check them out. She made Recipe Girl's, Chocolate Mint Thumbprints. The cookies looked incredible! I immediately added them to my never ending baking list.
I never buy Girl Scout cookies, don't get me wrong I love cookies and adorable little girls, but I don't need any extra sweets in my house. I bake too much as it is. Everywhere I turn though I am haunted by GS cookies, especially the thin mints. So to curve my craving, I decided to bump the Chocolate Mint Thumbprints to the top of my list.
I really enjoyed making these cookies. The cookie part was similar to a chocolate shortbread, the perfect base for a mint filling. I melted Andes mint chips for the filling since I had them on hand. Chocolate and mint are meant to be together if you ask me. These cookies kicked my Thin Mint craving for sure! Thanks to Dawn and Lori, my Twitter buddies:) See without Twitter I wouldn't of made these fabulous cookies, it is helpful in so many ways:)
