Yes I am!!
Please Tell me I’m not the only one putting out Cookies For Santa.
Well, since I started baking Brownies yesterday in preparation for Christmas, I decided to make some cookies while I was at it.
I’m not usually a cookie baking kind of person.
I just feel like I don’t have the patience for “from scratch” baking, but I am all for packaged cookie mix.
So, I decided to make some Sugar Cookies for my niece and nephews.
Since I’m not one to go traditional, I jazzed them up and went with two batches of regular and one batch of Peppermint Sugar Cookies.
For the Peppermint Sugar Cookies I just added 1/3 cup crushed peppermint to the mix and sprinkled some on top of the cookies as well, after baking.
Now like I said, I did make two batches of regular and I topped them with Pillsbury Holiday Funfetti icing in Rudolph Red Vanilla and Green as well as the corresponding sprinkles that were included with them.
The only thing I had any kind of issue with is that this dough can be a bit sticky.
I found if you place it in the fridge for a few minutes it goes a bit firmer and is not as messy to roll out and cut, either free hand or with cookie cutters.
All in all, I found these cookies to be super delicious, and I would definitely make them again.
Is this a recipe you would try? Do you like your cookies a bit jazzed up?
