IN A WHIRL to find the perfect birthday dessert for December? Just turn to these yummy seasonal swirls!
"The buttery mint treats practically melt in your mouth," Gloria confirms. "Plus, bright food coloring gives them a lively look for parties."
While Gloria likes to form her cookie dough into wreath shapes, CT's kitchen staff gave her recipe a new twist. They created peppermints wrapped in cellophane—perfect for pairing with Julie Todd's "candy" project.
I must make 30 different kinds or cookies during the Christmas season-many to give away as gifts. Judging from the comments I get, these pretty pink poinsettias with a hint of cinnamon flavor are not just my own personal favorite!
After I experimented in the kitchen mixing and matching ingredients to come up with a new and different cookie recipe, my husband proclaimed these the winner! With a little peppermint extract, these cake-like cookies bring a nice close to any meal.
A lightened version of Whoopie Pies, with a peppermint twist to make them Christmas-y. Kids love them! Instead of adding peppermint extract and red food coloring, you can add 1/2 cup crushed peppermint candies to the marshmallow fluff. $mdash;Dion Frscher, Ann Arbor, Michigan
I created these because I wanted something different for my cookie baskets at Christmas time. They melt in your mouth a deliciously minty taste. In my circle of family and friends, these have become a most anticipated seasonal treat.—Sally Nicosia, Lynn, Massachusetts
With this convenient recipe, you get four different kinds of cookies from just one batch of dough. The cutouts, peppermint balls, spicy fruit balls and chocolate slices are enough to fill up a Christmas treat tray.
When chocolate and mint get together with a hint of peppermint, mmm…magic happens. If you don't have mini muffin pans to make these cookies, use disposable foil baking cups.—Pam Correll, Brockport, Pennsylvania
