"It should be noted that I’m a Christmas cookie baking fanatic. I probably bake no fewer than 15 kinds of cookies every December. This cookie recipe was inspired by all of the fabulous KISSES mint-flavored candies that appear on grocery store shelves during the holidays. My husband is enamored with all things mint, so these were created especially for him." - Lori Lange
