Excellent recipe!!! Everyone loves these cookies. I did omit the cream of tatar, simply because I didn't have any. I have tried this recipe with both butter and margarine, and butter makes a much tastier cookie. :-) Thanks, Jan!!!



I was looking for a recipe to mess with to make a peppermint cookie, and this was a winner. I omitted the vanilla and cream of tartar and added 1/4 c. finely crushed candy canes (down to pretty much a powder) and 2 1/2 t. peppermint extract. Then I rolled them in more crushed candy canes and sugar (probably about 1/3 c. and 1/8 c., respectively), and did not flatten them. They turned out extremely well and have become my favorite Christmas cookie this year!



When they first came out of the oven the were wonderful. After they cooled they still tasted good but were a bit crumbly. Overall I will use this recipe again.
