Citrus herb cookies

I stumbled across this recipe last week and I was curious to see how will mint and tyme go in a sweet cookie.
I tried and and the result was delicious cookie which leaves a very pleasant fresh after taste in your mouth.
My 6 year old daughter loved it as well, she couldn't believe that there was mint and tyme in it.
I cut the cookies to shape before serving though as they were a bit flat, next time will add a bit more flour to the dough.
