These are very very very easy and look great (mine look a lot better than the photo). I made these on a recommendation from a friend who used mint choco chips rather than the mint extract but I couldn't find the chips so went by the recipe and they are fantastic. Definitely try to make the balls small, more appealing than larger. I also added a few minced leaves of garden mint.

Made for Spring PAC 2009. Great cookies. I loved the hint of mint flavor ~ wasn't over-powering at all. Thanks for posting this Az G!

Tried these at christmas and took them to a piano recital. Everybody loved them. Only thing I changed was dusting with powdered sugar instead of rolling the dough balls before baking. Warning: highly addictive.
