If you want the Brownie Mint Cookies to be round like the ones pictured you can roll out the cookie dough and cut out cookies in a circle shape with a circle cookie cutter.  Or…you can make them into traditional Brownies by doubling the recipe and then spreading the dough into a greased 9×13 pan.  You will just need to increase the baking time to 22-24 minutes.  You can also just drop the cookie dough into round balls on the cookie sheet if you are pressed for time.

    A profitable affiliate marketing program should require no more than an hour and half of supervision per day.
    As a sales and marketing professional, finding the niche or
    key demographic group interested in your product will provide the avenue by which
    your company will increases sales and make profits.
    Most affiliates, however, will make an initial investment for some web hosting and a
    domain name for their first website.

    One function of the bustle and the hoopskirt was to make the waist look smaller and
    to enhance the bust. Indeed, Roberto Cavalli has drawn its own spot as one of Hollywood’s most sought-after Italian fashion brands.
    Fortunately, in this day and age of the Internet and the
    increasingly diverse global fashion market, you certainly don’t need
    to go all the way to Japan to get the very latest in Japanese fashion.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what you’ve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Certainly you got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
