Homemade Thin Mint Cookies #recipe

My family loves thin mints more that just one time of year.

Instead of taking up a lot of space in our freezer buying boxes of girl scout cookies, we make our own cookies for a lot less, all year round.

These cookies are super simple to make.  I love that this thin mint cookie recipe only has 3 ingredients.

You can make these for a lot less than buying them. They are cheaper than buying the thin mint girl scout cookies.

You can make these cookies for parties, gifts or just to eat when you want.
