Peppermint Crunch Christmas Cookies

These might possibly be my favorite Christmas cookies.  They are so DELICIOUS but the best part is the absolutely wonderful aroma that fills my house while they cook.  A Christmas candle or Scentsy Pot can’t even touch the Christmasy (is that a word?) smell from these cookies!  My sister told me about this recipe a few years back and I have made them every year since.

Christmas Cookies 2Note:  It is a little tricky to figure out when these are done.  I check on them at 10 minutes and don’t take them out until they are a little brown around the edges.  After they come out of the oven if you let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes they will stiffen up a bit and be much easier to lay on a cooling rack.
