These were good. ALL my kids liked them. They are a little greasy. I needed way more than 4 to 6 drops of peppermint, closer to 12 to 16. Doesn't hurt if you slightly overcook them. very yummy!!

Super simple to make--the cookie itself is soft, chewy and oh so chocolately! I love the mint filling--it's so refreshing! I made a whole batch of the dough and usually roll them into balls and stick them into a freezer proof container so I can bake cookies in small batches. I refrigerate the filling and bring it to room temperature after baking a small batch. This is a keeper, thanks so much for sharing!
