These mint disks are adapted from a recipe passed on to the cookbook author by Elizabeth Falkner, the owner of San Francisco’s popular Citizen Cake bakery. The mixture is simple to put together, and you can adjust the mint flavor to your liking. Taste a bit and add more if you wish, as mint extracts and oils vary.
