“A chocolate mint cookie, rolled in powdered sugar that crackles as it bakes. A well received part of my past cookie trays. The original recipe called for mint flavoring, I have found the extract gives a much better flavor. If you really love mint, and can find mint flavored chocolate chips use those instead of semi-sweet.”
