I love participating in the annual Blogger Cookie Swap – not only is it for a great cause, but it’s also a chance to force myself to get creative and come up with a new recipe. I use the feedback from my family and recipients to see if it’s going to be a keeper (and if the bloggers agree, I think this is definitely a keeper.) It’s an adaption of my favourite Christmas cookie – one my aunt always brings to our annual family holiday party. I love the minty taste, the crumbly texture, and I thought it would be great to add my current holiday candy (I cannot stop eating these), the Hersheys Candy Cane Kiss, in the centre as a pillow cookie.
Hope you enjoy this (slightly tweaked) Beardy classic!
Peppermint Kiss Cookies
225g unsalted butter
150g granulated sugar
1 large egg
375g plain flour
5 candy cane, smashed into tiny pieces
I’d definitely recommend taking part in next year’s Food Blogger Cookie Swap, as it’s a lot of fun and for a great cause!
