Double Peppemint Crunch Cookies

Double Peppermint Crunch Cookies - these soft treats are half-dipped in white chocolate and sprinkled with candy cane bits.

Hi guys! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break. Family and Food is always a good combination 🙂 For turkey day we stick to pumpkin, and creams, and fruity desserts. But as soon as black Friday hits, it’s all about the peppermint. I’ve shared with you some of our new favorite peppermint recipes, like these Peppermint Cheesecake Bars and these Peppermint Melt Aways.

Today is no different. I thought I would share one last yummy peppermint recipe for the season. These cookies were very easy to make and they look so pretty and festive! They were delicious too! If you have plans to go to the store to buy some cheapy cookies for your next party, buy the simple ingredients for this recipe instead. They don’t take much time or effort to make, and you’ll be praised by family and friends, I promise!

Here is the recipe…

  • 2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

  3. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Let stand for two minutes then remove to a wire rack.
