My mom made these when I was little. I have the recipe but have not been able to find mint wafers. Where do you get them? MariLiz @ (remove spaces)

@MariLiz, I would guess any candy making type store would have the ming wafers.
And I plan to make these cookies next time I take cookies to a party so I hope they are as good as they sound!
