With mixture, beat in eggs. Add dry ingredients. Chill dough for easier handling. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with foil. Roll dough into teaspoons onto the sheets.  Bake for 7 ½-8 minutes. Remove and place either a half or 1/3 mint on top of hot cookie.  Smooth the mint over cookie top once it has melted.
