A new turning point-mint biscuits
My mother is famous for many things. One of them is sugar cookies, which is out of this world! They are so thick and soft, amazing!
We like to find new sugar cookie recipes and see how they stand up to her old-fashioned recipes. Today’s tried and real recipes measure quite well, mainly because we modified our top sugar cookie and added a little holiday element-mint! !
These mint cookies are very popular with the whole family!We have a feeling because they are slightly different from our other sugar cookies, but there is a bit of Christmas inside (and above)
My favorite part is the crushed candy canes on it. We even went a step further and added mint extract to the cookie dough. Very good!
How to make peppermint cookies
Making delicious sugar cookies is easier than you think. To make these mint biscuits, first beat butter, cream cheese, eggs, and sugar to a creamy shape. Add almond and mint extract and stir until fluffy.
In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients-flour, baking powder and salt. Add this mixture to the cream mixture and stir until a soft dough is formed.
Make sure not to process the dough too much, roll it out, and cut with your cookie cutter. We think the perfect thickness is about ⅜ inches thick. 😉If you want crisper cookies, you can roll the dough thinner.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. While the cookies are baking, make your frosting.
We modified the classic sugar biscuit frosting and made it into a mint version. For this, we added a little peppermint flavor/extract, food coloring and crushed candy canes.
Making peppermint cookie frosting is very simple. Just mix butter, powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, mint and food coloring together.
When the cookies are cold, use crushed candy canes to grind your cookies and toppings.
If you don’t like sugar cane flakes, you can also sprinkle with sugar crumbs or crushed mint Andes.
How to store peppermint cookies? Just put it in an airtight container and leave it on the counter for 4-5 days. Before doing this, be sure to let the icing sugar set to make sure the biscuits will not stick together.
Friends, Christmas is coming soon. These peppermint cookies are perfect for your office party or as a sweet holiday gift for neighbors. let them! Everyone will love you for it. promise. 😉
