Well I made the cookies using the recipe from the December 10th post.
Instead of individual cookies, I spread the dough in a jelly roll pan (a cookie sheet with sides) with 6 pulverized candy canes in the batter, and candy cane flavor Hershey Kisses dotting the top of each cookie bar. The dough raised up around the kisses, sinking them in a little bit. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
The folks went mad for them... snitching them from the bowl before hubby could get them arranged on the platters. The peppermint scent was very strong and you could smell them as soon as they entered the room.
I had been afraid that 6 candy canes wasn't enough, but we tasted the edges without the Kisses, and the peppermint flavor came through beautifully.
