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!

 

Peppermint Cookies

Supplies Needed for Peppermint Sandwich Cookies:


These cookies are really easy.  I add some extra flour to store bought sugar cookie dough and roll out.  Depending on the size of your cookie cutter you can get anywhere from 24-48 cookies!  I like to use the star cookie cutter!

I bake those according to the directions and then mix up the ganache and the chocolate topping!  Assembly is easy and then you have these gorgeous cookies that look great on a platter…especially this Peppermint Platter!

You can package these cookies up in a small Santa Bin and gift to neighbors or add them to a mason jar and package with these cute free Handmade with Love Gift Tags.
