With just 3 simple ingredients, these delicious little gems come together in less than five minutes.  Better yet, they taste amazing and are such a dead ringer for your favorite Thin Mint! If you’re short on baking time, these cookies are the perfect way to cheat your way to homemade. Great for cookie exchanges, or a tasty gift for the neighbors, friends and teachers, or maybe just because!

In fact, they are SO easy we thought we’d make a little video to prove it!
