Peppermint Shortbread Cookies - The Great Cookie Swap

Yum
This is the first year I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.
It's a cookie exchange among bloggers.  You are given 3 bloggers names, you send them each a dozen cookies of a recipe you created and then you will receive a dozen cookies from 3 different bloggers. 
How fun is that!?!
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap partners with Cookies for Kids Cancer, a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer.  What a great cause!  In addition to being part of a great cause, I was introduced to fabulous bloggers!
I received cookies from Sarah @ How I Pinch a PennyAlyssa @ Curious Kitchn and Amanda.  Such delicious yummy cookies!  One was pepperminty, the other like a pecan pie and one kind was an Italian Rainbow Cookie, that was gorgeous by the way!  I have never been so excited to see my postal carrier with a box because I knew there were edible goodies inside!

I know you are dying to know what I made and sent!  Before I get to that, let me tell you a little about my swap matches.  I was matched with the lovely ladies from Pam @ Living Rancho Delux
Natalie @ Life Made Simple and Justine @ Cooking and Beer.  All talented bloggers!  Check out their sites!  Justine @ Cooking and Beer has really peaked my interest!
So what kinds of cookies did they receive?

Peppermint Shortbread Cookies
a total must on your cookie baking list this Christmas season!


Easy to make...perfect flavor for the season...awesome cookie to ship!
And why else, they are just so dang good!



Ingredients to make 2 dozen:
2 sticks unsalted butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp peppermint extract
1 Tbsp peppermint mocha creamer
1 pkg white candy melts
peppermint crunch sprinkles (or crushed candy canes)
Directions:
Blend together butter and powdered sugar.  Add the flour, peppermint extract and mocha creamer.  Once all the ingredients are incorporated, roll dough into a log.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice cookie log into 1/2" slices.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove and let cool on a wire cookie rack.
Once the cookies have cooled, melt white candy melts in the microwave (follow package directions).  Dip each cookie halfway into the melted white candy.  Sprinkle with peppermint crunch sprinkles immediately.  Allow white candy to harden.





All you need now is a mug of Hot Cocoa with Peppermint Whipped Cream!
Those two will totally put a jangle in your jingle!

For other holiday cookie ideas, make sure to check just to the right where it says Crazy For Cookies.
I'm sure you can find some inspiration there!

    1. I Used Dr Aziba Product to solve my Penis Growth For Help!
      problem of 3.8 inches to 9.0 Inches in Less than Seven Days.
      Two hours after starting the Product, I began to feel its results. My penis was tingling (but it did not hurt), and little by little it was growing. Three days later, it already measured 6.6 inches. I had to do absolutely nothing because it was completely automatic. Six days later, I had gained one more Eight inch. The result: 8.1 inches! I began to feel more confident as I slept with my Girlfriend, who is always willing to do the dirty. In the end, she told me a lot has changed in me and i now gives her so much orgasms in half an hour. I'm recommending you with similar problem or any health issues like HSV,HPV,ALS,DIABETICE etc., to Get In Contact with Doctor Aziba via Email: Priestazibasolutioncenter@gmail.com & WhatsApp +2348100368288 For Help!

  4. It's a great pleasure for me to write this testimony about how I got my Herpes virus cured a week ago. I have been reading so many comments of some people who were cured from various diseases by Dr. Kham but i never believed them. I was hurt and depressed so I was too curious and wanted to try DR. Kham then contacted him through his email, he assured me 100% that he will heal me, I pleaded with him to help me out. My experience with him was great, he healed me just as he promised. He sent me his medication and asked me to go for a medical check up after two weeks of usage. I agreed with him. I took this medication and went for a check up, to my greatest surprise my result was negative, i am really happy that i am cured and healthy again. I have waited for 5 days to be very sure I was completely healed before writing this testimony. I did another blood test one week ago and it was still Herpes Negative. so i guess its time i recommend anyone going through the same way. reach him through his email address: dr.khamcaregiver@gmail.com OR call, add him on Whatsapp +2348159922297 You can also check his Blog at https://drkhamcaregiver.blogspot.com/

Truly herbs have proven to be the best remedy for herpes and i want to share this to the entire public on how Dr Kham cure me from herpes 1&2 with his herbs, I never believe it will work because the doctors keep saying there is no cure but i was desperate and needed to get this thing out of my body. I saw a comment online testifying how Dr. Kham cures her from herpes and hpv and I contacted Dr. Kham explains my problem to him and he prepares the cure and sends it to me through UPS, Which i use just the way He instructed me and thank God today I am a beneficiary of this cure. I went to my doctor for checkup after Two weeks of taking the herbs and I was tested Herpes 1&2 Negative and my doctor told me that the virus is completely gone from my system and he was very shock also and ask for his contact then i gave it to him and he also contacted him in need of other patients. So I will tell you all who are looking for a cure to his/her Herpes Virus, I will advise you to do a very good research about herbalist Dr. Kham and see more about his good work and a lot of people are benefiting from him right now. He also cured my Uncle and his wife from HPV. Dr Kham heals with natural herbs.

  9. My name is Thomas White, from United states, i have been Herpes positive and it is just like been through hell; well special thanks to God almighty for using Dr Twaha, the greatest Herbal doctor in curing my herpes disease. I was diagnosed of this disease in the year 2004. Although I was taking my medications I was not myself. Until a few weeks ago. My friend came to me and told me that he saw many testimonies on how Dr. Twaha  cured people Herpes disease. Although I never believe in herbs, I said to myself "seeing is believing" I took his name and searched it on GOOGLE, I saw many testimonies myself. Quickly, I copied his email: drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com I emailed him, he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he sent me a message  and told me that he required some items in which he will use in preparing the cure for me and he told me that it will cost me some money which i sent to him because I need the cure urgent,  He bought the items and prepared a cure for me, then he sent the parcel to me through courier delivery service. I paid the courier services, I got my parcel, it was a bottle of ointment as described by Dr,Twaha After taking the ointment he told me to do, the herpes test and the result came out negative. Quickly I messaged him and told him what happened he congratulated me. I promised to tell the world about him. You can contact him with any problem  via email: ( drlregbeyen10000@gmail.com ) or contact him on WhatsApp +2349038518881 thank you Dr Twaha

  10. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com
