Love this recipe but my kids hate minty things! So I left out the mint, and I crush about 3 candy canes and 2 TBLSP sugar and sprinkle it on top when the cookies are done, the kids love it! The teachers raved about them last year!
Made these (with the help of DGD) and they were easy and tasted great. I followed the directions exactly and loved how they turned out. I did have a problem with them spreading out way to much (which is why I did not post my photo) so would suggest anyone trying these be sure you make them thick enough when rolling. I added the pepperment extract only to the red and vanilla to the white. We had so much fun making these and even if they aren't as pretty as Pamela's picture - they taste great and DGD is so very proud. I will be making these every year from now on.
These cookies are fantastic! But I do question the quantity on the recipe as listed. I made it EXACTLY as listed... I didnt have a 18 oz roll so I actually weighed out 9 oz. and when done i used a tsp to be sure i was using the correct amounts of dough because I KNEW i would use to much if i didnt.. lol. So with 1/2 of a 18 oz package.... and 1 tsp of each color making a cookie... I had 15 cookies..... and this says 3 dozen. so that was VERY disapointing. but they do look great, and taste great!
This is the second year i have made these... they are all gone!
Our family used to make these every year at Christmas. We used homemade sugar cookie dough, but otherwise everything was the same - they just remind me so much of the holiday's now. Great recipe! Glad you posted it.
Very good. Will make again next year
What a great addition to my recipe box! The 3 TBSP flour really does make a difference. The only tip I would add would be to keep the dough as cold as possible so that it doesn't fall apart on you. My girls were helping me and overhandling the dough warmed it up and made it difficult to handle. Nothing a few minutes in the freezer can't fix! THANKS!
I got a similar recipe off of the Food Network's 12 Days of Cookies newsletter a few years ago. I make them every year. I also crush some candy canes and sprinkle them on top for a little extra flavor and sparkle.
I love this recipe. I brought this to my mom's house for our cookie baking day. It's easy enough that the younger girls can make them by themselves and it looks so festive on the platters. I brought 2 (18 oz) packages and colored one red.
These are totally cute and have just the right touch of peppermint flavor. And the refrigerated cookie dough is just the shortcut I need this year. I added a bit more red food coloring as well. Thank you for a really fun recipe!
