Peppermint Sugar Cookies #SundaySupper Cookie Exchange

I am on cookie overload this week for sure! Not only did I have my office cookie exchange, Baby and I also headed over to a friend’s house for a cookie decorating session with her Brownie and Daisy Girl Scout troop. We have cookies coming out of our ears, but it does not lessen my excitement in the least for my FAB #SundaySupper cookie exchange today.

Similar to the office exchange cookie choice, I went simple, but kept the flavor profile holiday inspired with my Peppermint Sugar Cookies.


These cookies were supposed to stay thick and have a cracked top.  I was hoping it would look pretty when the sugared area cracked open.  As you can see, they didn’t visually come out as planned.  No cracking at all.  The original sugar cookie recipe HERE from had so much butter, the cookies tasted like delicious butter mints.  The flavor of the cookies was a success, plus they had a great soft, chewy texture, but I they were just flatter than I wanted.


I know I mentioned earlier, that this week the team has an extra special host who knows all about Cookies.  Janet Keeler, Food & Travel Editor for the Tampa Bay Times and Author of Cookielicious,will be joining us with tips on baking for the Ultimate Cookie Exchange.  How fun!  And as an extra sweet treat, during #SundaySupper chat this week, we are giving away 5 signed copies of Cookielicious with 150 fabulous recipes inside.

So grab your mixing bowls and measuring spoons and go get your bake on today!  There are too many incredible cookie recipes in the lineup this week!  You don’t want to miss any of them!
