FOOD Week Continues with a Cookie

If you aren't a York Peppermint Pattie fan then you might not love these cookies, but if you ARE like me (And my Mama!) than you will die over these cookies. The rich chocolate flavor mixed with the minty flavor of the York Peppermint Pieces is just divine, not too mention the cookies look pretty cute too.

I found my York Peppermint Pieces at my local Tom Thumb, but drugstores and stores like Target have them too. The "pieces" are basically York Peppermint Patties in M&M form that come in resealable bags. I'm sure you all have seen these before.
