I am making some cookies for neighbors and just realized that though I thought I had peppermint extract I don't.
Can I use a couple drops of peppermint oil instead? I know it's safe to use a drop of peppermint oil in a glass of water to increase concentration/mental clarity so I don't think it will make them sick.

Anyone know for sure???

Peppermint extract's main ingredient is peppermint oil. As long as what you have is food safe, sure.

Use it sparingly though. A little bit goes a long way. And the extracts are cut with alcohol.
