Since the Chapmans were coming over today for an early Christmas dinner, I made another batch of candy cane cookies. This time they were made to my Mom’s exact specifications, including the crushed peppermint sprinkles on top:
Why did I bother when last time I skipped that last step altogether and no one noticed (except Mom of course)? Cause last time I didn’t have a meat tenderizer aka Peppermint Pulverizer. Luckily that problem was solved early last week with a quick run to Target. Crushing peppermints to smithereens with a somewhat large mallet made for a great Sunday afternoon activity.
Oh and please don’t point out the one candy cane going the other direction, it’s bothering me enough as it is.
