I followed this recipe to the inth degree. They came out thin flat unusable objects. What did I do wrong? I’m so disappointed.
Just a suggestion, instead of the vanilla extract, maybe try peppermint extract! Would make the cookie more flavorful!
We like this little cookie. Butterscotch hard candy makes a nice variation for those of us not wild about peppermint. A good addition to my cookie collection.
The actual cookie is bland, however, the flavor with the white chocolate and crushed peppermint candy on top is good, but they are very crunchy. I made 1/2 of them with the candy canes on top and then I switched to the Andes Peppermint baking chips- the white chocolate ones. I had to sprinkle them on top and it was messy, but they are much better that way. If I decide to make these again, I might just melt the Andes baking chips and dip them in that.
Best cookies ever.
Delicious! We also did not chill the dough, it handled just fine and baked for about 15 minutes. We did find we needed more than 1/2 cup of crushed candy, but I think if we had crushed it finer it would have gone farther.
This is a great recipe! It has become a favorite and requested each year now. This is the 3 year to make them!
This was really easy to make. I did not chill the dough. With all that butter, I didn't find it hard to handle as long as I rolled the balls quickly. I only baked them for about 16 minutes to get a golden brown bottom. This is a great recipe to make with kids, too. Mine had lots of fun crushing the candy canes and dipping the cookies. Will definitely make this festive treat again next year!
I made these for a cookie exchange. They were the first to disappear! I used the softer peppermints and they worked great.
These little cookies are adorable.
