Alternatives to fresh peppermint

By the way, instead of fresh mint, you can make the cookies with dried peppermint leaves or with food grade peppermint oil. As for the latter, you’ll have to experiment with the amount yourself then. About a few drops of it would do the trick, though. However, the cookies won’t get their green color with the essential oil. So you can make the cookies even on cold days, when there is no fresh mint in the garden. Thus, they pass perfectly as fancy Christmas cookies.
