I am probably one of the least trendy people ever – by the time I find out about something, it’s probably ending! The adorable charm bracelet I got for my birthday? Pretty much everyone at work already has it. The cool bag that everyone on the tube is sporting? Hmm, maybe I should get one?
So I can never remember if mint is a St. Patrick’s Day thing – I seem to remember peppermint being a Christmas thing, but can it be used for Paddy’s Day? After all, mint is green (although I don’t think mint grows wild in Ireland – such a bad Irish fiancee!)
But cool or not, these cookies are amazing. And you won’t be thinking about trendy while you’re secretly eating all of these….cookies transcend cool!
