Hey everyone! Kristin here from Yellow Bliss Road with a special Christmas treat for you!
Two of my favorite sweet Christmas treats are Sugar Cookies, and Peppermint ANYTHING. I decided to put those loves together and create one incredible Christmas cookie. These Peppermint Oreo Sugar Cookies will be a hit when they grace your holiday cookie tray this year.
Have you seen these adorable little Candy Cane Oreo Minis?? They are so cute, and sooo addicting! They made the perfect compliment to my favorite sugar cookies! I also threw in a handful of Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips, because, well, why not? The result was a sweet and crunchy cookie that my family has really been enjoying.
I’ve got two young kids, so my Christmas baking needs to be kept somewhat simple. They are 6 & 7 so they are really enjoying learning about how to bake but we still try and keep the ingredients simple, which is why I used a sugar cookie mix instead of my favorite sugar cookie recipe. If you prefer you can use my recipe, or any sugar cookie recipe that you love. Just mix up the ingredients and add in the crushed Oreos and Andes mints. Drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a cookie sheet, preferably lined with parchment paper. I like to use a cookie scoop to ensure evenly sized cookies.
I’d venture to guess these could be Santa’s new favorite cookie!
