Peppermint Cookies and Treats means Christmas and the winter holiday’s to me.
When you hear, smell or taste Peppermint, how can you not think of the holidays? Impossible, right. Peppermint is synonymous with the holiday season. As soon as Starbucks announces that it is time for their Peppermint Mocha Latte – It is over for me! My favorite holiday treats are peppermint cookies. If you search Peppermint on my website, you will come up with a crazy ton of results – like my Peppermint Spoons, Peppermint Candy Bowl, Peppermint Mocha Truffles and my newest favorite, Peppermint Christmas Chex Mix, aka Christmas Crack!
Many of you have cookie swap parties around the holiday’s. I know that I am always looking for another cute addition to our cookie swap recipes. So, I scoured the internet and pulled together a round-up of some of the greatest peppermint cookies and treats. Each of these uses my favorite ingredient, Peppermint. One of these is bound to be the favorite cookie of the party this year!
