Let the holiday baking begin! I love this time of year and all the delicious holiday treats that come with it! It snowed a lot here just yesterday so my kids and I built a snowman, drank hot cocoa by the Christmas tree, and made these purely irresistable Peppermint Meltaway Cookies. I can’t think of a better way to welcome in the Christmas season. Peppermint is one of the ultimate Christmas flavors and the options of what you can make with it are endless. Have you tried my Peppermint Chocolate Cake, Peppermint Bark Cheesecake, Peppermint Sugar Cookies (soft Lofthouse style kind), White Chocolate Dipped Peppermint Sugar Cookies (chewy kind), No Bake Peppermint White Chocolate Cheesecakes, Peppermint Bark Popcorn, or these Peppermint Oreo Truffles? You had better add a few of those to your holiday baking list this year, as well as these heavenly Peppermint Meltaway Cookies!
To say these are a dangerous cookie is an understatement. My small family finished all of these off in one day! Sure it doesn’t make a huge batch but still, normally we show a lot more restraint around here. We have to because I bake and cook for a living (this blog is my job in case you didn’t know. Sorry about those pesky ads) and there’s always a serious abundance of desserts sitting around especially as we near the holidays. These though, goodbye self control, time to indulge a little.
After one little taste you will immediately understand why these are labeled “meltaway” cookies. They literally melt in your mouth. Their texture is dreamy and there’s not really any other cookie like it. Plus, they have the most delicious buttery, pepperminty flavor. And as if those things weren’t enough, these are finished off with a sweet, luscious peppermint frosting and tiny bits of crushed peppermint. It’s a cookie you’ll dream about. They’re a cookie everyone will request again and again. I may have to hold off on making them again for a while since they’re much too good to resist.
