I used peppermint extract instead of almond extract and couldn't imagine it having less peppermint taste, more would have been a bit better. When I pulled the cookies out of the oven, I couldn't get the peppermint sugar mixture to stick, so I did my best to sprinkle it on top and put them back in the oven for a couple minutes. This worked, but not as well as pressing the cookies into the mixture before baking. I also dyed half the dough red and swirled it with the plain dough. I love having peppermint flavored, candy cane shaped, red and white swirled cookies, but I really hate rolling ropes.
