This was the first cookie I ever made from scratch and they were awesome. I crushed the candy canes and the balls of cookie dough in them before cooking and they turned out great.
I received these cookies as a gift from a co-worker. They were absolutely heavenly!! They literally melted in my mouth! She left out the candy cane bits and instead dusted them with powdered sugar. (no mint flavour added - so they were really just chocolate truffle cookies) They looked nice and tasted even better! She told me where she got the recipe and now I will rush home to make some for my family get-togethers. Yum!
Variations I made: add 1 tsp peppermint extract to batter. After baking, allow cookies to cool. Dip in melted dark chocolate chips and then dip in peppermint candy bits. Allow chocolate to harden before storage. Also try same with almond extract & chopped almonds on top. So addictive, I'll have to make more before Christmas!
I had a hard time getting the candy cane bits to stick after the cookies came out of the oven- the 2nd sheet went in with 2 or 3 bits on each cookie- they stuck but didn't look great- I then tried peppermint extract in the batter prior to refrigeration- then baked them and dusted with powdered sugar upon cooling- they were perfect!!! Light, fluffy and cake-like, they taste fabulous!
Delicious, with or without the candycanes. It was so easy to make that my husband even wanted to help. I will definately make these again. I cant wait to get them to the cookie exchange tonight.
This was very good with the hint of mint but I made the mistake of mixing the candy cane pieces in with the batter and then cooking it... no be good. Still taste good but they looked horrible and lost their shape.
I found it difficult to get the crushed candy to stick on the top of the baked cookies. The second batch I took the uncooked ball of each cookie and rolled the top in the peppermint candy. This worked much better.
I added peppermint extract to dough to give it "minty" flavor. Peppermint pieces did NOT stick, so I used white and red royal icing to decorate. As my 2-year old said when he ate one, "Mmm, delicious."
I made these last year for my families Christmas dinner, ( extended family too), they were the favorites even over the frosted sugar cookies. They freeze well too! I was thankful for the recipe cards that came with the issue so I didn't have to write the recipe down over and over. I am making them again this year. They look festive on a cookie tray as well.
My friends and I LOOVED this cookie. I made it for our cookie exchange and it was the cookie talked about the most. I took the advice from the other people who rated it and put the cookies back in the oven after placing the cnady canes on top. Next time I will crunch the canes finer for more of a sugary, powdery top. DIFFERENT &DELICIOUS!!!!
