SimplePeppermint Cookies

I am so excited that Thanksgiving is nearly here. I always love when the family gets together and we are going to be seeing family all week. First at Thanksgiving and then at a wedding for my sweet niece on Saturday.

The grocery stores are already getting crowded. I was in the baking mood this weekend and made these simple peppermint cookies. They only have 5 ingredients so they are super simple to make. For a different peppermint flavor I used these. I also used a baking mix for simplicity.

Hope you enjoy them~


Simple Peppermint Crunch Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 °. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

Chop peppermint candies into bits.

In a bowl, mix together butter, sugar and egg until blended. Add baking mix and combine. Add peppermint candies.

Place cookies on parchment paper about 1 1/2 inches away from each other. Do not skip the parchment paper or the ends may darken.

These seem simple enough! I love Andes mint but I didn't know they came in peppermint.

I have never seen the peppermint crunch Andes candies but I love the looks of them! We're hosting this year. We traveled two years in a row and it was a bit much. So I'm sad to not be with my parents and siblings this year but we're with some friends and my husband's family. And we'll be home!
