I love the Peppermint Kisses candies.  They look so cute and you can really taste the candy cane flavor.  So this year instead of making cookies with chocolate Kisses I wanted to use the Peppermint Kisses in a cookie.  I kept it very simple and just put them on top of sugar cookies as they came out of the oven. The resulting cookie was delicious and super easy to make. If you aren’t into baking you could use refrigerated dough and end up with a very easy dessert to take for a party or cookie exchange.

I used a basic Sugar Cookie recipe from the King Arthur Baking Cookbook, with a few modifications.

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Mix together the butter and sugar till smooth. Add the buttermilk or sour milk and vanilla and mix well.

  3. Form the dough into balls and put on a greased baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes.

    • Me too! I am not a big fan of either peppermint or white chocolate separately, but I love these candies. The combination just works.

  1. Me and my daughter always make christmas cookies like these every year. We use broken candy cane pieces as a topping. They come out well if the pieces aren’t too big.
