      Made these for KK's Kitchen Forum Recipe Tag Event. Made exactly per the recipe, but due to elevation will decrease the Flour by 1/4 cup next time. Also really crush the peppermint candy finely. Otherwise these made up into very nice, and tasty cookies with a wonderful Pink peppermint middle that is such a treat. Thank You Kitty for a really spectacular recipe. I am adding this recipe to my Bake Sale Cook Book as well as my Dunkin Do Goods Cookbook.
