Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Makesabout 2-1/2 dozen
So I thought the consistency and taste were terrible at first.. my roommates hated it and it tasted heavily of flour and “chalk.” However, we stored them in the fridge over night and it completely saved them and they agreed they tasted great after that! So just make sure you chill them after baking!
These cookies melt in your mouth and you don't have a strong peppermint tase. It's a keeper!!
Loved making these cookies for my daughter's teachers. Melt in your mouth goodness! Yum!
These cookies were beautiful (albeit fragile) and the texture was amazing but I ended up not liking the flavor. Waaaaay too much peppermint. I recommend dialing down the peppermint extract in the dough or omitting the peppermint extract from the icing. Super bummed!
Great recipe. Really pretty cookies too. Ill be adding this to my yearly Christmas baking.
These are my new go to Christmas cookie! They melt in your mouth and are so good!
One of my favorite Christmas cookies, these are on my cookie plates every year! I always double the batch and I just dip the tops in melted white chocolate rather than using frosting. I also use Andes peppermint crunch baking bits instead of peppermint candies to continue the melty theme.
recipe is close to my spritz recipe. Just 1 cup less flour. And of course the peppermint extract. I will try these. I can see why they would melt in your mouth. Oh, I see there is no egg as well.
Absolutely delicious! For the so-called experienced baker who claimed they were HORRENDOUS, well maybe YOU don’t know how to bake or missed a ingredient! I think you were a bit harsh with your comment!!!
I’m not the best at baking so wasn’t sure how I’d do with these. They taste so delicate how they melt as you chew them. Happily I made these and they came out great! They are now a Christmas cookie staple in our house! This year I’m also going to try cinnamon in place of the peppermint ??
