    I've made these twice this week. The first, exactly like the recipe, they were good, but not unbelievably good. They spread out a lot for me, and I could have used more mint. The 2nd... perfect. I melted the butter before adding the sugar and used bread flour. I added a 1/2 cup of crushed candy canes (5 canes). I also didn't grease the baking sheets. As several others recommended I only baked for 9 minutes. The final result is absolutely delicious! And more festive with the candy cane pieces.  -  07 Dec 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    reduce cooking time by a few minutes and they stay soft and chewy and great tasting for days, (but they didn't last days around our house)  -  25 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This were soooo good!! I used milk chocolate chips because that's what I had and they turned out great. The only thing I might change would be to add a little bit more flour to make them a little softer when they cool. Everyone at the office loved them!!  -  14 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
