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.
