These are GREAT! One of my coworkers brought these cookies to a party, and I'm so happy I tracked this recipe down. She used Andes mints, but I only had plain chocolate chips, so I added 1 tsp mint extract during step 3. We both added about 8 drops of green food-coloring because bright green mint cookies just seemed more Christmasy. We also flattened the cookie balls slightly before baking. This is my favorite Christmas cookie recipe by far!
