My family loves these cookies. I refrigerated the dough after shaping it into balls but still had the slug-shape problem. Also, it drives me nuts when a recipe says to divide the dough into X number of balls. It's much easier for me if the recipe says to shape the dough into balls of a certain size. I found that balls of about 3/4 of an inch were the right size, though I had to make the cookie canes a bit larger, about 4 inches. No more slug shapes, and I had no trouble getting these off the cookie sheet.
I also used more crushed peppermint candies to ramp up the peppermint flavor. My husband doesn't like candy, so I made some of the cookies without the peppermint, and he loved them. Finally, I ran out of white chocolate, so I made some with melted semi-sweet chocolate--not as pretty, but my family raved about them.
I'll make this recipe again.
