MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 14, 2011

I have made these since I first saw the recipe. I have substituted many flavorings, and added chips, shaved chocolate,or chocolate mint bar, and every time they disappear! They are one of the quickest, most versatile cookies I have made. They taste wonderful no matter how I make them.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 6, 2011

The cookies are okay and easy to make, but there is WAY too much peppermint in them. I'd only use HALF the recommended amount if I made them again.
