    Great Tasting

    Zack Zocchi from Utah

    I tried this recipe because it sounded great, and its a great idea, although I do believe it could be improved. My cookies came out great tasting, I personally would have preferred a stronger presence from the peppermint, but everybody I gave them too thought it was perfect! The only thing I disliked is that they didn't come out looking like an amazing cookie, but that was probably my fault. Overall this was a very good cookie, and its great for the holiday season!
