I'm sad to say this recipe was a disaster for me. The dough was so soft and sticky that even after adding a little more flour, it was impossible to work with. I rolled it out and I couldn't even remove it from the wax paper, which I floured. I had to dump the whole batch. Not happy.

Have made this recipe for years and always very pleased and loved by all. I use Mint extract instead of peppermint extract. The green lends to the flavor expectation and I am surrounded by mint and chocolate fans.
