My Attempt/Success with this Recipe :

Recipe/Ingredients Changes : I didn't change a thing!


My Family's Verdict :

My Thoughts : These were my first attempt in baking cookies for my daughter's school teachers ... and it worked out well that my daughter was able to help make them too. I would definitely bake/make them again. However, you really need to be a peppermint fan for you to truly enjoy this version.

My 3-year-old Daughter's Thoughts : LOVED making them as they were easy and very interactive for her age. Plus she enjoyed eating them too.

Gift Receiver's Thoughts : They raved about them! But whether that was because of the gesture in receiving them OR because they actually liked them still remain to be seen. =0)
