  • Combine flour and salt. Reserve 2 Tbsp. butter; beat remaining butter with 1 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add vanilla; mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture until blended.
  • Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap individually in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 325ºF. Roll out half the dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Use 2-inch festive cookie cutter to cut into 90 shapes, rerolling scraps as necessary. Repeat with remaining dough. Place, 1/2 inch apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets.
  • Bake 12 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Microwave chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1 to 1-1/2 min. or until almost melted, stirring every 30 sec. Beat cream cheese and reserved butter in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add 2 Tbsp. crushed candy; mix well. Gradually beat in remaining sugar until blended. Spoon into pastry bag fitted with piping tip; use to pipe icing onto bottoms of half the cookies, adding about 1/2 tsp. to each. Cover with remaining cookies, top sides up, to make sandwiches. Drizzle with chocolate; sprinkle with remaining crushed candy. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Enjoy your favorite foods, such as a serving of these festive cookies, on occasion as part of a balanced diet.


Omit candy canes. Stir 1/2 tsp. of your favorite extract, such as mint, into the prepared icing before piping onto cookies as directed. Then, top chocolate-drizzled cookies evenly with 3 Tbsp. of your favorite colored sprinkles.


If you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon icing into bag, then cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to pipe icing onto bottom sides of cookies as directed.
