I am so thankful that Betsy is allowing me to guest post here at Java Cupcake today! I am Heather and I blog at My Life Well Loved about healthy living, marriage, living your life to the fullest and healthy, easy recipes. Well, most of the time! And then I splurge on little treats like these amazing Creamy Mint Cookies I’m sharing with you today!

I LOVE Andes Mints, I mean…really, who doesn’t? Now, can you imagine combining Andes mints with cookies? It doesn’t get much better than that! These cookies are to die for! If you thought you loved cookies before, just imagine icing them with melted Andes mints. That’s exactly what happens in this delicious cookie recipe.

This was the first cookie I made successfully as a newlywed around 4 years ago. For some reason, I really struggled to get my cookies to be the right consistency until I found this bad boy. My husband likes it so much, he asked me to make them again. I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as we did!
