These are a nice lightly minty cookie. I used Giradelli melting chocolate from Sam's Club and drizzled it over the top for a beautiful presentation.

This recipe is a totally disappointment BECAUSE there is a white filling and no place in the recipe or instructions does it include the ingredients or how to put this cookie together.
