Mint Butter Cookies

Mint Butter Cookies

These cookies can be made with fresh or dried mint. You could use frozen mint as well. They have a delicate, almost cake-like texture. The mint adds a subtle flavor. I used a little lemon extract- mint extract would give them a more intense mint flavor.

We made these in an herb cooking class the other night. Everyone enjoyed to cookies. It is also a great way to use mint. If you grow mint, you know it can be a bit invasive.
