A bit dry. Not like a truffle. eppermint was good.
These were good, I found that the teaspoon size balls were just too small and went to more of a tablespoon size for the balls. They were a better size and didn't get overcooked. If you press the crushed candy into the cookie a bit immediately after you take them out of the oven they tend to stick better. Overall a good holiday cookie!
These cookies were the best cookies that I have had in a long time. I added different toppings to the top because my husband doesn't like candycanes. I added toffee bits and were very good. Were very easy to make took no time to do.
Perfect for cookie exchange with the spoonful sizes. Adjust if you want bigger. I crushed my candy canes up a bit too much, but it actually infused the cookies with much more of the flavor and created a bit of a 'glaze'...baking for 6-7 min, then adding candy and baking for another 2-3 min to set decoration. Might be nice with chunkier candy next time like in the picture - and add a dusting of powdered sugar. Anyway, got raves!!!
Using one "heaping teaspoon" of dough makes an extremely small cookie - had to adjust. Also, had to bake for about 8 minutes, remove, put on candy canes, and finish baking for 2 minutes to make them stick.
These were easy to make and tasted great--like chewy brownies. However, they did not puff up like the picture. They came out like a flat, round cookie. I will make them again with adjustments for baking at altitude.
Such a fantastic cookie! I first got the recipe out of Food and Family in 2004 and have made them every year since. This cookie is now part of our family's "christmas cookie must-haves." Watch them closely, to make sure they don't overbake.
I was not totally thrilled with these cookies. They tasted okay, but seemed to get hard really quickly. I may have over baked them, so if I try again, I won't bake for the full time listed.
Everyone loved these. So good, even the GUYS at work were asking for the recipe. Good without the candy cane topping too. I plan on making these again and again.
Personally, I didn't care for these too much, next time will add more minty flavor...however, everyone who I gave them to loved this recipe will be a keeper.
