Tips and tricks:

  • Put the cookies in the fridge if you want them to set up faster.
  • Store in an airtight container for 5-6 days on the counter. Or place cookies between pieces of parchment paper and store in the freezer.
  • You can skip the crushed peppermints if you want. 
  • Oreo thins break very easily so be extra gentle while separating them.
