Peppermint Snowball Cookies

Serious Eats cakespy Post a comment

All it takes to mint-ify these cookies is is a simple swap of the usual vanilla extract for peppermint, and instead of dusting the cookies twice with confectioners' sugar, you conduct the second coating with crushed candy canes. The resulting cookies are kissed with mint, which works rather well with the rich butter and nut mixture. It doesn't give this cookie a completely different personality, but it's different enough to make you appreciate snowballs anew. More

American Classics: Peppermint Brownie Cookies

Sweets Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

These fudgy, cakey cookies are perfect for those of us who love brownies but perhaps don't trust ourselves around a full unguarded pan. My favorite thing about making my own homemade "bake and slice" logs is that it allows you to enjoy these cookies at their peak, ie fresh and warm from the oven, as you need them. More
