Double Peppermint Cookies are a Christmas specialty. Filled with candy cane pieces and a sweet peppermint flavor, these cookies are sure to win any mint lovers heart!
It went by fast, but we are now on Day 5, and the final day, of Christmas Cookies Week.
For cookie week, I made:
And of course these deliciously minty Double Peppermint Cookies.
These cookies are my kids favorites every year. A delicious soft cookie with a bite of peppermint and crunchy chewy peppermint pieces.
You don’t have to add the food coloring if you don’t want.
It is optional, but the way the candy pieces just jump out with the very Christmas looking cookie… the chef’s kiss. 🙂
Why wouldn’t you want that fun?
Also I strongly recommend a gel food coloring because it works better in the batter and has a stronger overall more even color.
The week has come to an end, but you have got to check out today’s recipes.
