Christmas Cookies – Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies
Sugar cookies! Yummy yum!
they are definitely a favorite.
Last year I showed how you can simplify your cookie making by rolling them into balls and dipping them into colored sugar and sprinkles.
Avoiding the mess of burnt sugar and rolling and re rolling cookie dough out to get shaped cookies.
So this year, I wanted a cookie that tastes like a sugar cookie, but I could make as a drop cookie.
Then I found the bags of peppermint crunch in the baking aisle in the grocery store.
I used them last year for Peppermint Crunch Brownies, so yummy and minty!
And, because my minion loves all things minty, I wanted to make her some peppermint crunch sugar cookies too.
You will need
- 2-3/4 cups flour
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 bag peppermint crunch baking chips
- additional sugar for rolling
First, cream the butter and sugar together, then add vanilla and egg. Add in your baking powder and salt, then flour.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 8-10 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
Once they are mixed, you can size them out onto a baking sheet for freezing. I created balls the size of a walnut then rolled them in sugar and patted them into rounds.
Let me tell you, these are the perfect after-dinner cookie. They finish that meal off and leave you feeling fresh! I LOVE the mint in these, and they are soft and chewy deliciousness!
