Crunchy bits of peppermint candy tastefully top melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies.
To crush candy, place in a freezer plastic bag and seal, then pound with the flat side of a meat mallet or a rolling pin.
These cookies will keep their shape better during baking if they're very cold when you put them in the oven.
