These cookies make a great holiday treat as well as a great christmas present. You can put them in small plastic cover, tie them with a ribbon and you are good to go..

The original recipe calls for mint extract, but i couldn't find that in my place. So i used regular vanilla and it worked just fine. If you have peppermint extract on hand feel free to add few drops of it in.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..
