    yum! I made mine into 1" balls and flattened them. Then I dipped half the cookie in the choclate/shortening mixture THEN rolled the edge of the cookie (with the chocolate on it) into crushed candy cane.. drooool. If you like mint chocolate then you will love the candy cane on it Thanks for a great cookie recipe!  -  23 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    i would like to have given 5 stars, but found we needed to add a splash of milk to dough to get logs to hold shape. No other problems, recipe was easy and delicious. My mother gives 5 stars, but she didn't bake them, just ate them. I will absolutely make these again, and especially for parties and events. A very good recipe!  -  07 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These were tasty, but a bit dry. Also... I first tried making the dipping chocolate using butter for the "shortening" and it didn't turn out at all.... so shortening means shortening - when I used Crisco, they coated beautifully.  -  20 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
