      There is a BIG typo in this recipe. The amount of flour should be twice that, or the cookies will simply flatten out. If you want the actual recipe that works properly, making snow "balls", check the Betty Crocker recipe. I believe that you need to use 2 - 2 1/2 cups of flour or it won't work!

      I wasn't crazy about these cookies. They were very bland. They needed a boost of something. I didn't care for the texture either.

      My daughter came home raving about crushed peppermint cookies, and this was what came up with the 'search'. They are absolutely wonderful! We broke up the candies easily by sticking them in a plastic baggie and using a rolling pin. They do seem to hold their shape best if you keep the dough cold. And it's really important that they don't start to get brown, or they will lose their shape! I made these for two separate parties, and both times they were the one dish that was completely empty at the end of the night!
