Hey guys!! I am loving these cookies and Christmas is coming so I thought it would be great to share this recipe since it involves candy canes/mints plus they are great to bring to parties 🙂 This recipe was inspired by The Kitchen Magpie and Our Best Bites.
What you will need:
- 1 cup soft margarine
- 1¼ white sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1½ tsp peppermint extract
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2½ cups of flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 12 candy cane pepper mints or 3 candy canes (crushed)
Thanks to our lovely friend Alyssa for modelling with these yummy treats <3
Step 1: Set the oven to 375°
Step 2: Mix together the margarine and sugar until its light & fluffy. Add in the egg, vanilla, peppermint extract and mix more. Next beat in the flour, baking soda and salt a little at a time.
Step 3: Take a heaping tablespoon of dough, role it into a 1″ ball and place on cookie pan. *These cookies spread, only put 6 on a pan* Flatten the cookies with a cup (wet the bottom of a cup with water or it will stick to the cookie).
Step 4: Place crushed candy on top of cookies. Try not to get any on the pan or it makes it harder to clean off later (parchment paper is ideal).
Step 5: Bake at 375° for 7 minute-until golden on the bottom. Cool then enjoy! They make approx: 36 cookies
I am obsessed with thee cookies because I love the peppermint flavour! (These also make great gifts!) Comment below what Christmas posts you want to see on our blog this season 🙂 xoxo Marley
