crushed peppermint hard candies
2 1/4 cups
Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
Excellent cookies for a gift! Be sure to finely crush all the peppermint candies. Unless it's very fine, the candy won't stick to the cookies as well.
This cookie recipe is very tasty!! I enjoyed the buttery and minty flavor. It was quite time-consuming though. Grinding up the peppermints took a lot of time.
This was great. It was a very simple recipe that turned out excellently. The peppermint taste was not overwhelming. These also freeze very well. I will permanently add this to my recipe box of Christmas favorites.
I liked this recipe the first time I made it, and more each time as I alter it with help from other reviewers! This year, I add peppermint extract to the mix. I also use a leveled 1/2 tbs for smaller more bit size cookies and only cook them for 9 min and they're perfect. I also tryed using my magic bullet as suggested, much better then the blender.
I didnt like them ,if i make them again ill make some ajustments. CHERI
These were a hit at the office! I ground the peppermint candy in the Magic Bullet, too (hint: 4 candy canes = ~1/4 cup), and the consistency was perfect. I also used red and green striped candy canes for a more festive color. I love peppermint, so I added 1/4 tsp peppermint extract with the vanilla. I tried them out at the office, but with the reviews they got, I will definately make them for the family Christmas party!
They were good, seemed to be missing something. Kids loved them though and very easy to make.
These were not that good. I have never made snowball cookies before, so maybe I didn't know what I was doing/what to expect but I make a ton of cookies every Christmas as gifts and try a few new ones every year. This one will not be made again. Crushing the peppermints into a powder was time-consuming, and the cookies themselves just taste like a butter ball with a tiny bit of peppermint in them. Not my fave.
