Mint Cookies!

I found a recipe for mint cookies online, and decided to try it out.  The original recipe is from

You will need:
2 sticks of butter, melted
1/2 a cup of powdered sugar
3 teaspoons of peppermint oil, or 12 teaspoons of peppermint extract. (I only had 7...)
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 1/4 cups of flour
A few drops of green food coloring (optional)

Combine the melted butter, powdered sugar, peppermint oil, vanilla, and food coloring in a medium sized bowl. 

Mix well. Make sure that there aren't any clumps of butter or powdered sugar. Then, stir in 2 1/4 cups of flour.  Mix well.

Drop teaspoonfuls of dough onto a greased cookie sheet. Cook at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Enjoy!
