These are the most adorable looking cookies. They taste as good as they look as well. These are a fun cookie to make. They taste like a sugar cookie with a surprise mint flavor in the middle. The Candy Cane Kisses are delicious on their own, but when you add them to the cookies they are even better. I will definitely add these to my list of holiday cookies to make each year.

It will look like this when you add the first additions of the flour and milk.
When you get it all incorporated in it will look something like this.
Next get out whatever colored sugar you are going to use to roll these in.
