Chocolate Lemon Cream & Chocolate Mint Cookies

This past weekend, I was asked to make a dessert for a funeral luncheon.  I love being able to help/serve others at any time, so I was happy to make some thing. I came up with the idea to do cookies, but those are simple with kids.  But I wanted to have them a little "fancier" then just plain cookies.  So this popped into my mind and I ran with it.  On Sunday, the women that helped serve at the luncheon kept complimenting the cookies and saying how fast they went and people asked if there were more.  I am glad they were enjoyed!
