These are such a smooth cookie; minty, chocolate, and a pretty frosting. They are from a TOH and are a must have on a cookie tray!

Rachie P,,,Made these recently,and enjoyed,very tasty.I did have to add a bit more butter to make dough a bit softer,perhaps ,as I have been told the Canadian flour milled a bit different than the American flour. Needed to watch closely the baking time so as not to brown bottoms too much...Will prepare and make again,glad you posted...Don

These are very good cookies that make a nice presentation. I did end up with only 32 cookies (rather than the given yield of 4 1/2 dozen), even though I made per recipe and used a measuring tablespoon to portion the dough as directed. They were delicious, though, and looked pretty on my cookie trays. Thanks for posting the recipe!

These were pretty tasty and they looked really nice. A little bit dry, but that could have been my fault.
