First, I don't understand reviewers who "review" the recipe before even making it. Weird.
Second, I have made these for several years and they are delicious. They are on my annual cookie list now. I add a couple crushed candy canes to the dough mixture.
Third, I don't understand some of the reviews here. Someone said they used a 2" diameter scoop and didn't get near 72 cookies. The recipe clearly calls for 1" balls so of course you wouldn't get anywhere near 72. Do the math. I just made them again and got 69 cookies. I don't understand the people who say this isn't easy. I don't know what ki

We made these yesterday and had so much fun. Even my Dad got into the dipping them in the white chocolate. I did get 72 cookies using a teaspoon cookie scoop. They set very quickly. I think they looked like a very fancy cookie but were super easy to make. The peppermint flavor was mild enough that everyone enjoyed. I think Santa was very pleased.

Not a bad recipie. The taste is average. They look festive. I got pretty close to the 72 cookie yield. I used both white & semi-sweet chips. The white set no problem, but the semi sweet had to go in the fridge over night to set.

I like this recipe very much but as several others have stated it doesn't even come close to a yield of 72. I use candy cane sprinkles instead of crushed candy canes.

I just made these and have to agree with the previous review. I used a cookie scoop (2" diameter cookie) and got 52 cookies. I also had to "ice" them rather than dip them in the chocolate. Taste great ( I love peppermint), just not as easy to make as it sounds. Suggestions on dipping would be welcomed!

I followed the recipe directions on the label for the peppermint cookies but replaced a couple of items. Instead of the white chocolate almond bark, I used butter cream cookie frosting and instead of crushed peppermint candies, or candy canes, I used chopped chocolate peppermint squares.
The result was a very yummy cookie! My son's scout den "wolfed them down"!

I just made these and they weren't very easy. I couldn't find the peppermint cookie dough so I used the sugar cookie dough and added a little peppermint extract. Then I followed the directions. I basically iced them with the white chocolate morsels and then sprinkled the crushed candies on. They weren't as good as I hoped they would be, but I'll be taking them to my family get together this weekend anyway. The recipe calls for one roll/30 oz, but my rolls were 16.5 oz. So I had to use two rolls. It didn't make 72 cookies either, and I used a 1" melon baller to form them. Dissapointed for sure.

Very Festive, awesomely easy! The peppermint dough "found me" in Krogers right where the rest of the Pillsbury cookie dough was in the refrigerated section. 17 yo granddaughter rolled balls 35 at a time, baked them, and we dipped half of them in one sitting. Bought pre-crushed peppermint at Gordon's Food Service. So Easy, and tasty. We LOVE peppermint! She took a dozen to school today for her teacher! What fun!!!

Although I haven't tried this yet, I think I will add a 12 oz bag of white morsels with the next batch. They would become Peppermint White Chocolate Chips, still dipping the cookies afterward and adding the crushed peppermint.

I thought the cookies were easy and had a nice flavor. I found them at my local Giant Eagle. They are festive looking and a nice addition to some of the more difficult holiday baking I do. I dipped some with milk chocolate and some with white morsels. Only made 48 cookies, but I don't usually expect to get the full amount in most recipes. If I make these again I am going to add a bag of the white morsels when I add the flour and turn them into Peppermint White Chocolate Chip cookies, still dipping them afterward.
