Yeh they do need to be baked at 300 for about 20 minutes for me. They tasted nice and pepperminty. I dont really care to much for these type of cookies but these were the best of them that I have had. My son liked them too!

Very good and a great way (and fun way) to use up candy canes. I used 4 to make the 1/4 cup. Thanks for sharing!

This is a good recipe, but after 30 minutes, mine were still sticky soft in the center. I had to cook mine longer, but I sure do like them. I also increased the peppermints to 1/2 cup based on a recipe using only 2 egg whites.
