How do recipes like this get into print? It is close, but could be great! The schnapps is too faint a peppermint taste. Add some mint extract. Also, I increased the amount of corn syrup by at least 2 teaspoons to make the dough stick together better. (Why 4 & 1/2?) Use the whole box of Nilla Wafers. I painstakingly counted out 56, and there were fewer than 10 left in the box. With these easy fixes, it's a tasty and festive holiday cookie!
