Use a small cookie scoop
or a spoon and use your hands to roll into balls. Dip the top in crushed candy canes (try not to go overboard or the cookies will end up kind of soggy). If you do not have a cookie scoop, I suggest using a metal spoon to scoop the dough and then using slightly damp hands to roll into balls. The dough can stick to dry hands pretty easily, but damp hands make it much easier!
