Christmas time always makes me think of Cookie Exchanges!  I love seeing all the different types of cookies that are out there and discovering some new ones.  

I am always amazed at the time people put into their cookies.  Rolling multiple colors of dough to make a design, frosting and embellishing with candies, and all the complex flavor combinations out there.  

Growing up, we always made anatomically correct reindeer and elves.  That’s all I am going to say about that.  Now that my boys are getting older, it might be time to start that tradition with them:)  Yes, we are weird, but at least we are weird together!!

Spending time together, whether it be making cookies or fighting over what goes in the Christmas Creole, is the best part of the family time during the holidays.  Three years ago we spent time making fart noises in the Talking Tom app on our phones.  But we were together!!

This year, I wanted my boys to know that it is important to spread some of our cheer to others, especially if they don’t have large families or get to see their families during the holidays.  

You can still Spread Cheer to those around you!  My boys and I whipped up some Christmas cookies and dropped them off to a member of our church!  She lives right around the corner from us.  She makes me smile on Wednesday nights when we have Family Night Dinner, so it was nice to surprise her with some smiles from us!

Here are my boys delivering the cookies!  Funny that my 12-year-old Braxton is already taller than her.  My 10-year-old Connor is not far behind!

I grabbed a coupon for Betty Crocker cookie mix and frosting since we are strapped for time and ran up to Kroger!  Thank goodness we live less than a mile from it because I am always there.

After buying the mixes, I had a few more errands to run and happen to find some great containers to put them in!  Air-tight so you can store the cookies in until you eat them!  My hubby says that shopping at different stores is a waste of time, but not THIS time!

We jazzed up the sugar cookies with some peppermint extract and some crushed candy canes for texture.

I mixed these Peppermint Sandwich Cookies in one bowl on my mixer so I didn’t have to dirty too many dishes.  I made the boys load the dishwasher!

A small ice cream scoop helped me get these cookies all the same size, which is important for sandwich cookies.

Once I scooped, I cut them in half.  Otherwise, the sandwiches would be huge!

Peppermint Sandwich Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 9 minutes
Total Time: 14 minutes

These quick and easy Peppermint Sandwich Cookies are the perfect way to spread cheer. Use a cookie mix, some ready to use frosting and throw in some crushed candy canes for a great cookie to share!

Ingredients

  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix (1.5oz)
  • 1 pouch Betty Crocker Cookie Frosting in green (7 oz)
  • 2 candy canes (crushed)
  • 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick butter (room temperature)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Mix the cookie mix pouch, egg, and butter together until dough forms.
  3. Use a small scoop and make 1/2 inch balls of dough on a parchment lined sheet.
  4. Flatten with a fork, like you would a traditional peanut butter cookie.
  5. Bake for 9 minutes or until the edges are light brown.
  6. Remove pan and let cookies sit for 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack.
  7. When cookies are cool, spread some frosting on one half of the sandwich.
  8. Let the frosting sit for about 5 minutes before adding the top cookie. The frosting is thin and needs to set before you add the top cookie or it will run out the sides.
  9. Roll the sandwich cookies in the crushed candy canes to dust the frosting edges with candy.
  10. Pack and deliver to #SpreadCheer!
