    Annacia's Note:

    This was passed on to me by a friend. At the top she had witten: This buttermint sugar cookie recipe is not your common sugar cookie. You like something a little different, so this one is for you." I'm not exactly sure just how she meant that but it sounds good.

      My sister made these for Christmas this year, it was a new recipe for us, and everyone just loved them! Definitely a keeper! Hers were done after baking only 8 minutes, so keep an eye on the time!

      Really yummy and easy to make, though I did bake them for 15 minutes, I think. (I lost track of how many "2 minutes more" I put on the timer.) The mintiness is subtle and I do wonder if chocolate (just a little) would be a good addition. May try that soon. ;) Reviewed for Photo Tag's Cookie Exchange.
