What a fun and minty recipe! Followed your instructions completely and these turned out well. The best part is just how wonderfully cute these cookies turn out when finished! Had a hard time with the sticks - wondering if I made them too large. I think next time I'm just going to skip on the sticks as Elainemay did. Just a fun and neat idea!
