Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for a cookie exchange! We love the simplicity and ease of TS holiday baking! I made 9 dozen of these for a Christmas cookie exchange. Instead of the frosting and peppermint candy I used Andes Mints. Bake the cookie and put the mint on when cookie is still hot, let them melt and swirl the chocolate. Yummy. I also pressed the dough just a bit before putting into the oven.
