This morning my son and I started early on our Christmas cookie baking.
The first cookies we made were Peppermint Kiss cookies:
Some had already been "sampled" by the time I managed to get this picture.
Here's how we made these:
Peppermint Kiss Cookies
1/2 cup non hydrogenated margarine
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
Crushed candy canes
Cream margarine and sugars together, beat in egg and peppermint extract. Gradually add in flour and baking soda. Shape into balls and roll in crushed candy canes. Bake at 350F for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and top immediately with a Peppermint Kiss. Leave in pan another three minutes to set before removing to cooling rack. Enjoy!
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
p.s. while baking cookies we kept singing the : Christmas Cookies song! : )
