It’s Christmas time and holiday baking go hand in hand. You’ll want to bookmark this recipe cause if you’re into homemade gift giving… nothing is going to make the recipient happier than a tray full of these YUMMY peppermint buttercream cookie bars! I kid you not!
I am part of our Chamber in the town and they have this awesome little holiday event that involves Santa (of course), the tree lighting at Central Park, shopping, a Christmas tree contest, and lots more fun stuff. But this year I initiated a COOKIE CRAWL.
Local businesses that participated, needed to provide several dozen of cookies, bars, any kind of treat for the shoppers. When one of the business owners wanted to participate but had her hands full, I offered to make the treats for her salon. Four trays later, I had my share of sugar cookie bars and peppermint filling the air!
These are a huge hit, it doesn’t matter who or for what you’re serving them up–they will be a favorite!
Baking for holiday gift giving can sometimes be daunting when you run out of ideas. You want to make something delicious but you don’t want to spend an entire day baking the same thing over & over again. Right?
Everyone loves my sugar cookies but halfway during making them, I’m done. Done with icing and done with waiting for each batch to come out of the oven. So I thought… “how ’bout I just bake a sheet of sugar cookie dough, frost it and make it look festive”!
You can’t go wrong with crushed peppermint & peppermint flavoring mixed in with sugar cookie dough! Can ya???
Especially when you can have a tray done in no time and you don’t have to wait for frosting individual cookies–just a whole tray full.
Now , with only a few days left before Christmas you still have time to bake these. They freeze fantastically–so you can make them ahead of time and just thaw out when you’re ready to serve or gift!
