Sweet, buttery, dark and minty, these cookies are more than just fabulously nerdy.
A few years ago, I was inspired by some fractal cookies
on Evil Mad Scientist. I decided to make a triangular version. I wasn't an instructables member back then, so I didn't think of taking pictures of the step by step process. I did upload pictures of my cookies
to our flickr stream, though.
Now that it's holiday cookie season, I figured it was time to make another batch.
I'm particular about cookie recipes. I won't use shortening or artificial flavoring. This recipe is adapted from Alton Brown's sugar cookie recipe
You will need:
