My mother made these when I was a child and they were my all time favorite. Thanks for bringing them back around. I will be making these for my granddaughter. (Even if her mother won't let her eat them.!)

I've been making this recipe for several years now and it's an easy recipe for kids to help make the dough and the dough freezes well if you feel like making extra for another time. I've made using liquid and gel paste food coloring and I prefer the gel paste, the color is just much deeper. I do add a little extra peppermint extract when I make it and for a little something extra I sprinkle the cookies with finely crushed candy canes as soon as they come out of the oven, If you do that make sure you baked the cookies on parchment because the candy that lands on the hot pan makes a mess to clean off. The dough is pretty sticky and can be difficult to work with so I let it chill for quite a while or if short on time pop it in the freezer for a bit, the colder the better, and only bring out what I can work with in about a 10 minuets. These also work well as rolled cookies and cut out shapes with cookie cutters or rolled into logs and sliced and baked, this method works great for keeping on hand in the freezer for unexpected guests during the holidays. Just pull dough out, slice and bake and you have fresh cookies to offer guests in just minuets.

This is one of my husband's most favorite holiday cookies! They are time consuming, but worth the effort. My mother in law has been making them for many years. She also crushes up candy canes and rolls the top part of the cookie in the crumbs to add some extra peppermint flavor and crunch.
