16 Days til’ Christmas Countdown: Looking to bring something sweet to holiday party or baking cookies as gift this year? A festive and easy to make cookie recipe are peppermint kiss christmas sugar cookies!
What You’ll need:
- 1 cup room-temperature butter
- 1 bag of candy cane Hershey kisses
- 1/4 cup of finely crushed peppermint candies (about 10 pieces)
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sugar for rolling the dough in
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix together the butter and peppermint extract. Beat in the crushed peppermint candies. Gently mix in a few pieces of the candy cane Hersey kisses if you want.
Add the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt; stir well. Chill for 30-60 minutes. The dough should be soft but firm enough to mold and shape into 1 inch balls, then roll in sugar.
Place on a lightly greased baking sheet spaced evenly a part as they will spread out as they bake. Bake for about 12 minutes. Immediately after removing them from the oven, press a kiss in the middle of each cookie. Allow your candy cane cookie creations to cool for several minutes on the pan before removing to cooling racks!
