Peppermint Cream Cookies

One of my all time favorite cookies is my Grandmother’s Cream Cookies. A Christmas season never goes by without us baking them all together. This season I cranked it up a notch and added peppermint to them to give you Peppermint Cream Cookies!

Peppermint Cream Cookies | #12DaysofCookies I actually shared this basic recipe with you last year. Like I have said before I do not recall anyone ever adding anything different to the dough of this recipe. It has always been the same, just different shapes and sprinkles on the top. Well I have been know to always do things differently. So when I was thinking about how I wanted to do these cookies, peppermint was a natural choice. My new current obsession has been Andes baking chips. I love those little guys and they help up pretty well, while I rolled out the dough, shaped it, cut it and baked it.Peppermint Cream Cookies | #12DaysofCookiesThis year I am also doing something different! I’ve teamed up with 11 other bloggers in a virtual cookie exchange. We are each sharing a cookie recipe on our blog today. These twelve cookie recipes will keep you baking until Christmas.
