When you are planning for your cookie exchange this simple and basic sugar cookie recipe should be on your list. It’s a quintessential Holiday Cookie.
Peppermint candy canes will be the only add-in for this cookie. I used 3 which I chopped up with a rolling pin.
Some of the larger candy cane pieces I put into my small chopper and chopped them a little more. Then I put all the chopped candy canes into a small strainer and separated the fine peppermint powder from the chunky pieces.
