Pinterest has added to that collection. I have pinned a ridiculous amount of things I want to try someday and one thing that I kept seeing in my journeys through the land of Pinterest were cookies and brownies using Andes Crème de Menthe. I have always loved Andes as well as any other peppermint candy. So last week when we went on our weekly grocery run and I happened to see Andes baking chips I knew the time had come to finally try one of those recipes.
We decided to make the recipe for the cookies on the back of the package. Turns out this is a recipe that will stay far away from my keeper file. And I'll also be deleting all the pins I have for Andes recipes.
We're stuck with a cookie jar filled with cookies that taste like I imagine cookies would taste if you used toothpaste to make them. None of us like them and yet I hate simply tossing them. If we wait to do more baking until those cookies have been eaten I think it's safe to say the Kinsingers will all be on a no sugar diet for quite a while.
