Reviews for Soft Chocolate Mint Cookies
"My husband loves these cookies and they are easy to make."
"These cookies have a brownie-like texture. I didn't have buttermilk so I substituted about 1 tsp. lemon juice + 1/4 c. skim milk (do not stir) and let it sit for 5-7 minutes. I put about 9-12 cookies on a greased cookie sheet at a time and let them bake for 9 minutes. Any longer and they would have been overcooked, any shorter and they would have been too gooey. These cookies taste like a brownie when you first bite into them, and then you get the delicious peppermint flavor. My family was begging me to bake another batch!"
