My husband loves peppermint patties, and our son is crazy for vanilla wafers. So I put the two together to make a cool cookie that looks just like a burger. Kids of all ages get a kick out of them.

"Interesting and tasty."

"I used just a tiny amount of corn syrup and applied it with a small new artists' type paint brush. Worked like a charm. I was afraid the corn syrup would be sticky, but it wasn't at all. I made yellow frosting for the mustard, but didn't have red paste coloring, so for the ketchup I used melted red candy melts. That worked perfectly. My granddaughter and I made these together and they were a huge hit at the gathering we took them to. Tasted good too!"
