Mini candy canes are MUCH easier to crush than regular round peppermint candies.
Place the unwrapped peppermints in a ziplock, then inside a second ziplock (less mess!)
GENTLY crush peppermints with a hammer.
Do NOT do this on a countertop or tile floor.
Garage or porch floor is best.
Make sure the hubby doesn't use your cookie pan to hammer the peppermints!
(Yes, I know it's not something normally done for cookies, however, you will be glad when it's time to wash the dishes)
Bake cookies for 6-7 minutes. They will look a bit underdone when you take them out.
In our case, we take them out
early so they ARE underdone!
Quickly take the cookies off the tray before
These cookies make a fun and colorful treat for friends and family. Christmas just seems a bit more merry with peppermint cookies!
FYI...you can actually buy peppermint cookie dough now but then you wouldn't have the fun of smashing peppermints with a hammer now would you:)
