Frosted Peppermint Shortbread Cookies

Jump to recipe

If you love peppermint, you are in for a treat today!  

I’m hoping to post a lot of my favorite holiday treats this week and next so stay tuned and consider subscribing.  

But for today, I’m sharing a super delicious frosted peppermint shortbread cookie.

These are not your average shortbread.  There are little candy bits baked into the shortbread, peppermint extract, and candies sprinkled on top…you can’t miss the peppermint. 

The dough is very quick to mix up and not fussy.  I measured out 1 tablespoon balls to make my cookies uniform in size.  Bake them until just a very very light brown on edges.

Once they are baked you will want to do a quick coat of frosting on the tops.  I let the cookie kiss my frosting and flipped them over to dry.  

Make sure you sprinkle your crushed peppermint candy/candy canes on top quickly before you frosting glaze sets.

These cookies are great for a cookie exchange.  Not only are they delicious, they are so pretty so you can feast with your eyes before your tastebuds.
