Peppermint Sandwich Cookies

I am so happy to share with you today one of my most favorite sandwich cookies!  I think because they remind me of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies – my faves!  I am seriously on a peppermint kick lately…Candy Cane Place Cards followed by Peppermint Bark and now Peppermint Cookies!  I guess when you have something going that’s good…just keep it going!

    When I saw the title, I was at least hoping they’d be too much work so I wouldn’t want to deal with them. Ha! Fooled me! So easy! These may not wait until next year!

    You’re the best! imklvr aka Dona

  2. [...] At this point in the holiday season…ok so really on a regular Tuesday for me…all the hustle and bustle starts to take it’s toll on you.  You are tired of lines, tired of wrapping paper, tired of finding Christmas tree needles everywhere in your house…you need a drink {at least I need a drink!}.  I am really happy to share with you another one of my favorite adult beverages!  I made this one so I am extra proud of it!  OK basically it is a white russian with peppermint extract….but it was my idea to add the extract so therefore I coin it the White Christmas before anyone else can!  It pretty much combines my favorite things…coffee and peppermint!  I told you I was on a Peppermint Kick!
