"These were really good though the centers could have been a firmer set for biting into. They didn't last long!"

"I made these to taketo work fo St Patrick's Day.They were a hit. I agree with dogcat_8 -the dough would stick to the glass. And these do take a while to make from start to finish. Plus, mine came out plumper than the pictures, so eating just one cookie was to much for me. But everyone liked them! They could use a little more peppermint extract."

"These cookies turned out good but they weren't the easiest to make. The dough was VERY stiff and sticky and it was impossible to "roll" them in your hand. I had to use a cookie scooper and even that was tough. Forget using the bottom of a glass to flatten them either! The dough stuck right to the glass. I had to use a floured fork to flatten them. I wouldn't even attempt to put them on a regular cookie sheet. I used parchment paper. The icing was good along with the final cookie, but just a pain to work with the dough."

"My thirteen year old son made these this evening and they were delicious! He is fairly new to baking and the recipe was easy for him to follow and not to finicky. He took the suggestion to add a hint of green food coloring and was so proud of his results. I'm sure this will become a new family favorite."
