These peppermint cookies are just so beautiful, I could cry. *sniff* Yes, I’m dramatic about my love of peppermint. This is a new Christmas cookie recipe for me this year. I have my moms list of cookies that we made every single year, but I am always looking out for more Christmas cookie recipes to make. I love handing out tins of homemade cookies to people as a thank you gift. These peppermint cookies are easy to make and even easier to enjoy. I might even make these year round. Don’t judge.
