Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Mom used to make a cookie at Christmas that had a flat chocolate mint inside. You did not know this until you took a bite and found the surprise inside. I remember eating all around the edge and saving the middle for last. The mints she used are hard to find now, but Ande's mints work id you put a half one in each cookie.
