It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I love this time of the year... right after Thanksgiving, up until Christmas day.  So much Christmas spirit and cheer, red and green, gift-giving, holiday parties, tree decorating, snow, baking, and my favorite... finals!!!

Okay, I lied.  Finals are most definitely not my favorite.  At all.  Actually, I really can't stand them.  But neither can anyone else... 


So before I lock myself away in the library to study for the rest of my life ... I figured I would bake just one last time :)  I had an excuse anyway... I mean my class was having an end of the semester party... and someone had to bring some cookies... 


Plus, I found these Andes mint chips and had to make something with them.

So I made these :) mmmmmm.


























Andes Mints in a cookie.  Literally.  A great recipe for this holiday season :) Enjoy!
