Anyone notice Thin Mint cookies are getting harder and harder to find? Or maybe it's just that I live in San Francisco, where less than 15% of the population is under the age of 18.
In any case, they're really easy to make. I finished half a batch in under two hours from start to finish, with the help of very cold weather--I set the cookies out on the balcony and the wind chilled them in no time at all.
They taste as good as I remember the boxed version being, and I think they'd be superior if I used good chocolate. I didn't want to risk the expensive chocolate on my first try, but will do so in the future. Bonus: no trans fat or preservatives!
