Week 5: Andes Mint Chip Cookies (for Roommates)

Mmmm cookies. There is nothing better then a simple cookie and this is one. Basically, a chocolate chip cookie with Andes Mint Chips in it instead of chocolate chips. They're quite good. Unfortunately, I'm getting used to a new oven and the bottoms got pretty burned. Also, forgive me of the crappy picture, it was done quickly and with poor light.

My new roommate (hi!) and I (along with her boyfriend) had dinner my first week here. She made a chicken pot pie in the crock pot and I contributed these cookies. The chicken pot pie was delicious. I tried mushrooms to see if I liked them yet (I don't) and we drank wine (yum). 

Ready for a recipe?
