Would make this again.
I have been making these for several years, a few years ago I found a way to speed up the process, I roll the dough out, place the mints on top then cover with another sheet of rolled out dough, seal inbetween the mints by pressing in a dowl the size of the handle of a wooden spoon then cut them with a pizza cutter. Cuts the prep time in half. I don't use the nut on top, I drizzel melted chocolate on the top. 5 stars
