Christmas Peppermint Sugar Cookies


I saw a picture of these where I find everything else - Pinterest. They're adorable. And super easy to make. And addicting. Could be fun to roll in sprinkles for a birthday party, or just in peppermint for another taste.

Makes: 18 large cookies

  • 24 Hershey kiss candy canes
  • 1 stick butter, soft
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tbsp. whole milk
  • 1/4 c. red sugar
  • 1/4 c. green sugar 
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Unwrap Hershey kisses
  3. Beat butter, sugar, vanilla, and egg until mixed
  4. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and salt
  5. Add flour mixture and milk to sugar mixture slowly until well mixed
  6. Roll into 1 inch sized balls
  7. Put colored sugars in different bowls, and mix together green and red if you want
  8. Roll balls in sugar, then put on cookie sheet (or, roll in sprinkles or peppermint)
  9. Bake 9 minutes
  10. Remove and cool for 3 minutes
  11. Press Hershey kiss in the middle of cookie, and then place on cooling rack to cool completely
