These Peppermint Crunch Sugar Cookies are perfectly chewy with a crisp edge. The addition of peppermint crunch chips makes these a perfect Christmas cookie!
Does anyone else love making mini cookies? I just love making little bite sized cookies especially at Christmas time. Why? Because there’s always a plethora of goodies around, and when you make everything bite sized it is acceptable to try everything. Also, I’m pretty sure mini food is calorie free. Who’s with me?
Oh, you want 6 cookies, 4 truffles, and 2 pieces of fudge? It’s ok becasue they’re mini!! No one will judge 😉 Well, I won’t anyway.
So these cookies. They are fairly simple but that’s what makes them special. They are chewy, buttery sugar cookies. Simple and sweet! The magic happens when you add the peppermint crunch chips! The simple cookies are transformed into a must have christmas cookie!
How many cookies does one batch of this recipe make?
Can I refrigerate the dough overnight and bake the next day? Wanting to make these for a cookie party.

Yes, you sure can! Hope you all enjoy them 🙂
Are the peppermint pieces just crushed peppermint candy?

Andy’s sells peppermint crunch baking bits that can be found in the baking aisle. Almost like white chocolate bits with candy cane pieces inside. Hope you can find some!

I believe it’s spelled Andes. They were available all year last year on Amazon. Very pricey. Each year it’s difficult//frustrating to find them. The company has yet to realize its popularity and that they have a superior quality product.

I can find them at CVS. They’re the individual candies (like what Olive Garden gives w your bill) that come in a box; but you can chop them up like the candy bits Andes peppermint crunch thins.

I love making mini cookies until the third pan and then I tell my husband I’m tired and that he needs to make the rest. 😉 These look worth the effort, though! Perfect for Christmas. 🙂

Pretty and delicious!
Peppermint everything, please!! I love the idea of putting peppermint pieces in a cookie. Last year I put crushed up candycanes in a batch of chocolate chip cookies. It was good but it was definitely too hard for my teeth so I think that using those chips would be much better!

Mini definitely means a little bit more for the baker;) I’ve got to get some of those mint chips! A great holiday cookie:)Merry Christmas!!
Brenda@Sugar-Free Mom says
I’m sure every bite into one of these cookies is minty and crunchy, yum!
Ashley @ Wishes & Dishes says
I love these cookies! I have a friend who loves peppermint with a passion so I’ll have to bake these up for her.
I love peppermint and those would be a fantastic addition to any cookie selection.
Add a little bit more flour. I made one batch with the exact recipe that was too runny. I added flour and baked a little bit longer and they turned out much better.

Those sound great! I like mini cookies too, they’re just so cute…plus you can have more of them! 😀
