"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!!"
"Turned out perfectly! YUM!"
"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!"
"These cookies are so yummy and easy to make!! I tried putting mini chocolate chips in the batter, but they melted right away :-( At least they were chocolatey. We actually felt that the filling took away from the cookie, but it was good, we just preferred the cookies without it. After I melted the chocolate into the butter and sugar, the mixture was very grainy. But once I whisked in the eggs, the batter was very smooth! These cookies do not expand much so they can be packed on. However, as the dough cools, it becomes flakey and more difficult to shape. Still, a great recipe!"
"Hi Aroostook This was a great inspirational recipe for me. I love mint, but I can't eat fillings like your recipe makes. So I made the cookie part using mint flavoring in the cookie. VEry good. Also I used WheyLow instead of sugar (developed for diabetics) and Smart Balance for butter. Thank you Judy in WA"
"Wow! What a special treat. Thank you."
"i made these cookies a few days ago for a christmas party-- they were a smash hit! i got about 15 gigantic cookie sandwiches out of the recipe, so i cut them in half for the party so more people could try them. the whole night people kept coming up to me and saying how much they loved them-- one person told me they reminded him of thin mints only 1,000 times better ;). if you want an extremely soft and delicious peppermint/chocolate cookie, this is the perfect recipe!"
"Very yummy, rich cookie. I got 41 sandwiches made. I almost blew it - I began with only 2 T of butter and had to add the proper amount after it was all mixed. And they still came out just great - a nice chewy cookie. I was careful not to over bake them - only 6 minutes. The recipe made plenty of filling. My husband likes these frozen but I thaw mine before I indulge! I may make these at Christmas with red food coloring and peppermint extract. This time I used green and mint extract. But I WILL make them again. !"
