I played around with 2 recipes and created this one. We think these are delicious. You could put two together with a filling between them if you dare! Please know that prep time doesn't include the time to chill the cookies. You will notice there are 2 chilling times. These are a must have for your cookie exchange or cookie plate! Santa surely will appreciate these coookies! Excellent with a glass of milk! If you like more of a peppermint flavor, I suppose you could add some peppermint extract to the dough mixture. I didn't and we really enjoy them with just the crushed candies.
