These Peppermint Meltaway Cookies are little spin on my family’s favorite holiday cookie. They melt in your mouth and the peppermint buttercream is divine!
December is going by waaay too fast, which means peppermint season will soon be over. That makes me a little sad because I’m not quite ready to say goodbye. Since I still have a little time, I’m throwing in one last peppermint recipe today. My apologies to any non-peppermint lovers out there.
A couple years back I posted a recipe meltaways, my family’s favorite holiday cookie. I’ve eaten more of these in my lifetime than I can even count. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them. I decided to do a little spin on them and instead of frosting them with the usual cream cheese frosting, I went for peppermint buttercream then topped with with a little crushed peppermint candy. It was definitely one of my better decisions.
These are so simple to make, they take about 5 minutes to whip up. Just four ingredients in the cookies, no chilling required and no rolling & cutting shapes. They’re pretty hard to mess up. These are perfect for cookie exchanges and/or any holiday parties you may have left.
I can’t even believe Christmas is in four days!!! How did that happen? I haven’t wrapped one single present, I think I’d better get busy.Print
