I made these to give as presents to the staff at my office and building. Everyone loved them. I read the comments before making and decided that I didn't want to do the crushed candy topping either, and I couldn't find the Hershey Peppermint Kisses, so I mixed vanilla frosting with peppermint extract then sprinkled red sugar sprinkles on top. Worked perfectly!
These are a tradition! I use peppermint extract or pulverize the candy canes (I don't like big pieces)if I'm in a minty mood. These are fun to experiment with and you can top them with anything. They satisfy the chocolate/cookie/brownie craving for sure!
These cookies are sooooo good! I thought the candy cane part was too messy and they didnt stay on the cookie that good though. to take place of the candy cane, i got the candy cane flavored kisses and cut them in half, put half on each cookie right out of the oven. once they melted you can spread it around with a spoon, they tasted exactly the same and not as messy!
This recipe was easy to make, nice dough and fairly easy to work after refrigeration. However, they turned out lacy at the edges and flatter than in the picture. Any ideas on modifications? I live in the Denver area but made no high altitude modifications as I rarely need to do so for cookies.
I didn't want this cookie to be so Christmas-y, so I frosted them with vanilla frosting and the were WONDERFUL!
These cookies were good but I made some changes. I do not think I would have liked eating sticky crushed candy cane pieces on top. I wanted to melt the last two ounces of chocolate, stir in some peppermint extract, and dip the baked cookies in it. But wouldn't you know it, the store was all out of pep. extract. Instead I bought Andes mint baking chips and stirred them into the batter before refrigerating. The cookies turned out pretty good--nice and minty.
This is a very good cookie. Everyone who tried them liked them. Only one problem, which was that the crushed candy canes did not stick to the cookies after they had been cooked. I tried sprinkling the topping on halfway through the baking process and that came out much better and resulted in a pretty melted candy design on top of each cookie. When I make them again I will add a couple drops of peppermint extract as another reviewer did. I think that would improve them. Overall, however, a very good cookie.
Dough (after sitting in fridge) was like a solid batter- weird! It was a bit hard to scoop out, so let it sit at room temp for awhile. Dough was also really sticky, so flour up your hands reallly well! And for a little peppermint-y kick I added a couple drops of peppermint extract to the batter- Yum! Otherwise I got pretty good reviews for this cookie!
i chilled mine in the fridge for around 4 hours (it said min. 2 hours, up to 24 hours) and the batter was so hard I couldn't scoop it. first batch, the cookie didn't cook or flatten, just burned on the bottom. Important to let the batter sit at room temp to soften up a bit. The recipe did NOT mention that at all. BUT I'm getting good reviews on the ones that came out ok. rich & but not too sweet.
I loved this recipe. Very easy and very yummy.
