What a great recipe for emergency drop cookies. I will pass on to a friend who has just been drafted to be a Room Mother,. Can you tell me where I might find "cre'me de menthe" flavored baking chips?

Wow! This was easier than I thought it would be, and tasted great. I made a double batch tonight and they are 1/2 gone already with two teenage boys in the house! I was making them as one of several types of cookies I will send to school for the teachers. I guess I will make some more before Monday!
