Ok, so a few changes were necessary, but nothing too drastic. The basics were there. #1. Ignore the directions on the box & follow the recipe #2. Try 3/4 tsp of mint extract #3. Use 1/2 cup of milk after you whip the shortening and egg together #4. Stir until you get a sticky batter #5. If using a Silpat, it will take 12-15 minutes depending on how many you are baking at one time. #6. Try putting a peppermint hershey's kiss in the middle of the cookie after it's cooled for appx. 1 min. Not too much longer though or you won't be able to press the kiss in. #7. One batch makes around 34-37(ish) cookies. Very easy and very quick to make. They were a HUGE hit a the cookie party!

Very easy, and very good. Makes more than 24 cookies, though! I put a little mint M&M in the middle right after I took them out of the oven, and it made them look even more festive. Easiest and best Crismas cookie that I have ever made!

The name is, unfortunately, really misleading. I was looking for "balls" to make for my daughter's first birthday - I was going to build a pyramid. But these are, in fact, flat cookies. Delicious flat cookies, but still not balls. Oh, and I had to add milk because there was not enough moisture to form balls.
