I have never been a huge fan of peppermint, but once it’s around Christmas time I am all always sticking a sweet candy cane in my homemade hot cocoa whilst cozying up by the fire. Of course, I am a huge fan of holiday cookies, so what better way than to combine the two? 

I am sure your Holiday cookie list is getting very long, but what’s another cookie going to do? Peppermint cookies are staple in that list.

Feel free to get creative with this recipe and add ingredients such as: 

  • Nuts (pecans, hazelnuts, sliced almonds)

  • Dark chocolate chips
