Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies

All yesterday morning every idea I offered the hubs was shot down. So pesto & shrimp won out after all. Made for an easy dinner and we decided ice cream sandwiches would be a fun dessert.  The hubs saw Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips and that was the all I needed.  He wanted to use mint w/brownie ice cream & who am I to say no?
 
 
 
The hubs bought me a stand mixer for Christmas a few years ago (okay via our Yorkie) and was afraid I would never use it.   I try and prove him wring as often as I can.  The recipe called for sifted flour.  I used a sifter purchased at a local antique shop.   The finish product was delish.  I may have to have another one after lunch.
