My son and I decided to make some chocolate pixies with mint since it was cold and rainy outside today. They were super simple and fun to make and they made the house smell fantastic. My son loved them and my daughter told me they are her new VERY favorite cookie EVER. I must say, they turned out moist, minty, and so delicious.
