Yummy Peppermint Cookies - perfect for Santa!

Hi Poofy Cheeks fans! We are Mallory & Savannah from the DIY and Home Decor blog, Classy Clutter! We are SO excited to be back participating in the cookie exchange! Thanks Kelsey for having us! Today we’re going to share some delicious Peppermint Christmas Cookies. They are so soft and chewy with a little peppermint crunch! You will love these.

Peppermint Christmas Cookies


3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
2 eggs
1 c. butter flavored shortening (I use Crisco)
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. oats
Peppermint Baking chips (I used Andes, I found them at Target)
red food coloring (Optional)


Preheat oven to 340-350 degrees. What? I know. If you have an older oven, 340 seems to work perfectly so they don’t over bake. If your oven temperature is pretty accurate 350 should be fine. 

Combine brown sugar, white sugar, eggs and butter flavored shortening and mix well.

Add in flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla extract and red food coloring until you like the color. It took quite a few drops to get it a pretty red. You can make them red or leave it out if you would like.

Stir in peppermint baking chips. I used about 1/3 of a bag. 

Roll cookie dough into small balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. I dipped the top of my dough balls into the peppermint chips before placing them on the cookie sheet.


Bake for 9-10 minutes.

Let cookies cool for about 3-5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
