Holiday Peppermint Snickerdoodles
This recipe for Homemade Peppermint Snickerdoodles is very simple and easy!
They are delicious and adorable, the BEST Christmas Cookie for Holiday Dinners or Cookie Swaps.
This recipe is also versatile.
You could easily substitute the or eliminate the Peppermint Oil for another flavor, for your taste preference or for a different seasonal holiday.
There are many colors of Sanding Sugar, so you can adjust the coloring as well, if you’re making the recipe for a different holiday.
If you REALLY want to boost the Peppermint Flavor, consider crushing some candy canes or peppermint candies and mixing them in before you scoop and roll.
Combine sugar and butter in a mixing bowl.
Once the mixture is nice and smooth, add the eggs and vanilla.
Beat or mix again until a smooth consistency.
In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients.
Slowly stir those into the butter mixture until the cookie dough is well mixed.
Mix the sugar and cinnamon for the topping either in a bowl or on a plate.
I like to do this on a plate and then roll the cookie dough balls through it.
Roll batter into 2-inch size balls. Place on cookie sheet. Press each ball of dough down to flatten.
