'Tis the season for cookie making. Get in the spirit with these festive peppermint cookies that look like mint-snowballs.
Yield: 32 cookies
(Total time will vary; cook or bake time is per batch.)
How-To: Make short work of crushing hard peppermint candy. Place candy in a large plastic food-storage bag, and chill in the freezer. Crush candy inside of the bag by lightly pounding with the smooth side of a meat mallet or a small pot.
Success: We recommend using butter in this recipe for the most tender cookies.
