Grasshopper Mint Cookies

When I used to work in Bountiful before I had kids, I would eat lunch at Cutler's all the time. They have a brownie mint cookie that is to die for. I always crave this cookie. I've been looking for a recipe to duplicate this cookie. When I found this recipe I knew it looked similar but I had to try it to see if it really was. I altered the recipe by making chocolate buttercream frosting instead of a chocolate glaze. I wanted it to be as close to the Culter's cookie as possible. It wasn't exactly the same but it was pretty dang close. Now when I get a craving for a Culter's cookie I can whip these up and definitely be satisfied.
