Good but recipe needs work. Per other reviews, modified flour to 1 c. Did not freeze 30 minutes prior to slicing; they were plenty firm after 5 hours of refridgeration. Also I completely scrapped the suggested dipping combination, as I wanted more mint flavor and a solid finish. I melted 2 pckg Andes baking chips and 1/2 c. of baking wax (Gulf Wax) in a double boiler. Dipped cookies into mixture, dropped onto wax paper, refridgerated 30 minutes, and dipped a second time (only dip one cookie at a time, so they can be removed from hot chocolate mixture immediately, so the first coat doesn't have time to melt off). This resulted in a nice smooth texture with the firm finish the wax provides. Overall, tasty, but not as good as Girl Scouts. I feel the peppermint extract has a bitter aftertaste, so I will try a different recipe next Christmas for chocolate mint cookies that doesn't use the peppermint extract to achieve the minty taste.
