    I just tried this for the first time tonight for an "emergency" holiday tray for my husbands work... I LOVE IT! It worked great! I changed it a bit by adding 1/3 c hard peppermints that I grated to the consistancy of sea salt and then rolling the dough in them as well... I was hoping for more of a "crust" with this than I got but perhaps if I had chilled the dough first, I might have gotten a different outcome?? ANYWAY! It was awesome! I was afraid of it being TOO pepperminty but it wasn't at all! It was perfect! NOTE! THESE COOKIES SPREAD! I allowed about 2 in space and for the most part that was enough... the thicker is it the bigger it will become :) Thanks for the great go-to recipe for future holiday trays!

    I made these with the walnuts and they are so good. I almost don't want to share them with anyone. Thanks for posting the recipe.

    These cookies were the best I've ever made. Our youth group just ate them up. I was really surprised at how good they tasted without any chocolate in them! I've already had requests to make them again as soon as possible. I chopped up some candied apricots and used some very finely chopped walnuts and the taste blended perfectly. Plus being able to mix the dough the night before and just slice and slide them in the oven made the recipie even more attractive. I know I'll be making lots more of these.

    I made these for my Christmas trays. They were easy to make and the colors were pure Christmas. I made a fresh batch one morning as I was getting ready for work and the guys at work devoured them in no time. I will be adding these to my Christmas cookie cook book!
