I thought it really lacked in mint flavor, and I'm not even the mint enthusiast in our family. I didn't have any creme de menthe liqueur so I used Creme de Menthe Torani's syrup instead, so maybe that's what contributed to the lack of flavor? Anyway, I gave it a second try for my husband's birthday as he LOVES mint, and ended up added nearly 2T of peppermint extract to the mint syrup which really added to the flavor. I added a dash of syrup to the crumb mixture too. I also cut down on the butter because as much as I love butter, 1/2 C was WAY too much and made it difficult to get it to cling to the bottom. Finally, I didn't reserve any cookie for the top and instead melted some chocolate chips over a double-broiler with some peppermint extract and drizzled it over the top which made it look 5-star and quite stunning. After the revisions, I ended up really liking it, but as it was originally written... not my favorite.
