What's Christmas without some peppermint? Since I shared the perfect cut-out sugar cookies yesterday, I had to show you a fun little twist for Christmas. Peppermint sugar cookie sandwiches is what I came up with. Whew, I got some peppermint up on the blog just in time for Christmas. I can rest easy for a minute!
These festive sugar cookie sandwiches are incredible! They're minty, buttery, and have a slight crunch. The crunch is more so from the pepperminut crunch in the sandwich frosting rather than the cookie. The cookie becomes soft. It's like eating a heaven sammich.
I think when you add the small cut out in the center of the cookie and combine that with the frosting peaking out and festive sprinkles, it really pulls the sandwich together. It brings a little something special to these cookies.
On another note, there are only 6 days until Christmas. Tomorrow after the husband finishes working his overtime, we're going to brave the crowds and finish our shopping. We don't really like to leave our little guy with a babysitter, so he's coming with. Yes, we still have some shopping to finish for him. It will be tricky, but I think we can get sneaky with it.
I used some really great ingredients that came with my baker's box subscription for these cookies. Stay tuned in for next week! A review and giveaway of my bakers box will be on the blog and you won't want to miss it!
