Mint is a superb herb high in many vitamins and minerals. The oil extracted from mint leaves also has many medicinal healing properties. The herb, in fresh or dried form, is so versatile that it's used in teas, salads, sweets, savory, and meat dishes.

The dough of these puffs contains pureed mint leaves that give the dough a pungent aroma and a refreshing zest.

These puffs could be your breakfast or pick-me-up in the afternoon along with your cuppa... They could not only be part of your tea table but also compliment any bread basket of a rich brunch or dinner.
