      These are a wonderful little cookie. I love making them with my kids and husband. They are great with finely chopped walnuts in place of the candy canes, too. I usually don't stress butter or margarine, but in these cookies make sure to use butter. It really makes all the difference.

      What a pretty addition to my cookie tray! My husband doesn't like mint so I made a few without the candy but drizzled them with white chocolate. That gave me the idea to drizzle all of them with it and I really liked the effect. I had trouble with the dough holding together when I was using the mixer on it, but once I worked with it with my hands, it did fine. The cookies are very tender and delicious...and impressive looking! Thanks!!!
