i've been using this recipe for the last 4 years and will continue to do so as long as i keep getting requests to make them. they are time consuming but well worth it, i promise :) the wreaths are fragile so you really have to let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for at least 10 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack.

Nice tasting cookie but just way to much work in rolling all those little balls!!!!!!!!!!

I added 1 egg to the creamed butter along with 1 t. peppermint extract (instead of adding the extract after the flour). After reading the falling apart review, I figured it needed an egg. I had to add 6 drops of each food coloring. I did leave cookies on cookie sheet for 10 min before moving to racks. They are worth the effort - very festive.
