I spent a good part of yesterday in the kitchen. I’m in a baking mood and peppermint has been calling my name. I picked up a couple bags of those Hershey’s Kisses – the candy cane flavored ones – and I can’t stop eating them. Peppermint everything sounds good to me this time of year. So I went ahead and made some cut-out sugar cookies, topped them with a fluffy spread of peppermint marshmallow frosting, and threw some crushed candy canes on top. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Festive and easy, you know you want to make some of these Candy Cane cookies!
I’ve shared this sugar cookies recipe in the past, but it’s always nice to have it handy – especially heading into prime sugar cookie time!! The almond extract in the dough really makes this a standout, in my opinion.
