4 1/2 cups
cream of tartar
crushed peppermint hard candies
Unless you feel like putting this recipe in the fridgereator for a day or two, it is not that easy to work with. I suggest rolling right onto the cookie sheet. The dough is VERY soft and will break when trying to move the cut cookies.
This recipe make aLOT of yummy cookies. We made 2 1/2 dozen following the directions for the stained glass using Wild Cherry Lifesavers crunched up. We also made several dozen plain cutouts. We frosted all with a powdered sugar glaze drizzeled on top. A great cookie!!!
The dough was really difficult to work with. They're pretty cookies, but they're not tasty cookies. The taste of the cookie doesn't seem to meld well with the hard candy. They're also difficult to eat, like eating shards of glass and crumbs.
