I decided to try this recipe even though I didn't have any peppermint extract on hand. I followed the cookie recipe exactly and they came out perfectly! I agree with other reviews about following the baking time exactly.. if they are in even a minute too long, they will get very hard. 11 minutes seemed just right for me. I started with the normal directions for the filling, which made it too thin, and when tested in a sandwich, came running out the sides making a big mess. I ended up adding about 1/2 cup more confectioner's sugar to get it to the consistency that I thought would work between the cookies. I suggest either adding more sugar, or adding the milk gradually to get the thickness that you like. I also added a dash of vanilla extract, since I wasn't using mint, to give it a bit more flavor. After filling the cookies and letting them set, they were perfect! Not too messy, and they tasted great. And after adding to the filling, I ended up having just enough for my cookies, with just 3 left over without filling. Not bad!
