Remember my family’s jam exchange this past fall? That idea came from the annual cookie exchange that we do. Every December we get together and share cookies and catch up on the family news. This year was no different. I had grand plans for something else…. Then I saw this recipe – seemed easy and good all together. I brought some to work – they were gone instantly. Even had some to church – same thing. Knew they’d be a hit. So much so that my aunt made the same exact recipe! These were easy and awesome. And.... yes they did taste like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Mmmm Ice Cream!
