    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    As tasty as they are pretty! Great for a St. Patrick's Day party. If I use flour straight from the freezer, I don't bother chilling the dough.

      Good cookies and easy to make but will add more mint next time. Possibly drizzle with mint chips melted.

      Delicious and very pretty with the chocolate drizzled on top! I used peppermint extract and also added a bit of it to the chocolate. Next time I'll make a few more cookies, as these were certainly not on the small side. :-) Thank you Marg!

      These were excellent cookies.I drizzled them with melted chocolate but next time I think I'll put the chocolate on thicker. We really love the chocolate and mint combination. Thanks for a great cookie.
