Heat oven to 350. Coat baking sheets w/ Pam. Grab dough from fridge and shape into 1in. balls.  Place on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned.  Transfer cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
 
When cookies are almost cool, melt your chocolate & shortening in the microwave or double boiler.  Put your chopped candy canes in a small bowl.  Dip top of each cookie into melted white chocolate and then immediately into crushed candy canes.  Let harden on wax paper & enjoy!!
 
**these cookies are like a shortbread type of cookie and are SO good!  Not super sweet at all but very tasty!**
