Would make this again.
Not the greatest for kids but good for adults. Kids don't seem to like the taste and texture. 4 stars

Makes approx. 30 large cookies. I do not refrigerate the dough, as it makes it harder to work with. Taking hints from other similar recipes, I added a hint of vanilla in addition to the peppermint, and used 1/3 cup granulated sugar and 2/3 cup confectioners'--this makes them slightly sweeter. 4 stars

I have made this recipe for the past two years at Christmas and Valentine's Day. I add peppermint extract as well as the almond extract. Instead of the candy being sprinkled on the cookies straight up, I make a cookie icing, usually colored red or pink with peppermint extract for flavor and then put the crushed candy canes on the top. While this cookie takes a lot of time to make, everyone I know likes them. I will be making them again, definitely. My wife's Aunt shared this recipe with me and I always make them with her in mind. Unfortunately this great, wonderful lady has passed on but I remember her every time I make these cookies. She will always be in my thoughts and prayers. 5 stars

Not fragile at all. 1) make into two small 1" balls. Roll each ball into a "stick" about 3-4" long. Put the two colors next to each other and then roll back and forth till they blend...then just twist a touch (while still flat on counter --slightly roll top to left with one hand and bottom to right with the other) and then curl the top to form candy cane. Want fewer, make large. For larger yield can make them as small as you like. 5 stars

If you start with softened butter, I would NOT put the dough in the fridge. It made it really hard and crumbly. I ended up giving up on the canes and rolling out cut-outs. They taste great but the canes are almost impossible. 3 stars

I made these cookies last year, or at least attempted to. It was hard for me to form into a candy cane, sooooo I just formed into balls and then flattened with a glass dipped in colored sugar. Some of them i sprinkled the candy cane pieces on top of the cookie. I really liked the dough, so I will make my with the same method I used last year! =) 4 stars

I made 36 candy canes and hearts. They look great. Some break easily if you make them too thin. Taste wise...a little doughy for me. I was looking for this recipe because I used to make it when I was little. It is time consuming, but fun. 3 stars
