    A festive shortbread cookie with a touch of peppermint. A great use for broken and left over candy canes! As posted by on 12/05/07.

      Made recipe as written. I'm new to baking so this will be obvious to some but the candy melts leaving holes in the cookie. The candy also makes the cookie chewey. Next time I will crush the candy to smaller pieces or just substitute it for peppermint extract. I really like the peppermint flavor and shortbread combination.
