Peppermint Kiss Cookies

20 Dec


This recipe is a variant of one of our favorite cookies…the delicious peanut butter kiss cookie. You can think of this as the holiday version perhaps. A couple years ago we stumbled across a new seasonal delight from Hershey’s, the Peppermint Kiss. Now, if you haven’t had the privilege to bite into one of these buddies, then you don’t know what you’re missing. Go out and buy yourself a pack right now before they’re gone from the stores for another year!

Our recipe starts with a basic sugar cookie (feel free to use your own recipe or try ours out). We thought about adding some peppermint extract to the dough but felt it might make the cookies too mint-y and ended up leaving it out. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try with the mint extract please let us know how it comes out! Another variation that we hope to try out soon uses chocolate cookies instead of sugar cookies (we’ll let you know how that goes :D). In the end, the sugar cookie/peppermint kiss combo was a really delectable combination, try it out if you’re looking for something delicious.
