The recipe was a simple recipe to put together. The cookie didn't flatten out much during the baking process. There was not much flavor and the cookie was kind of dry. I could not taste much mint so maybe up the mint extract a bit. Not sure what to do about the dryness of the cookie. It was just OK. I like the cookie but would probably look around for another recipe. Read More
