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.
