Peppermint Cookies (non dairy)

We made several cookies this past week. My daughter commented how "hard" it is to chop candy canes. We all  loved the cookies:

1 cup margarine
1/2 white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup crushed candy canes

Cream together the margarine and sugars:

Add in the eggs, mixing well after each egg. Add in the vanilla and mix again. In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Add to the sugar mixture in thirds, mixing well after each addition. Fold in the crushed candy canes.

Drop by spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees 12-14 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack.

Breaking the candy canes is SO hard! They always end up being either too big or too small when I do it. I made chocolate candy cane cookies this year, but maybe next year I will try these!

What a great way to use up the leftover candy canes! I usually stick them in a bowl and use a meat tenderizer to chop them up. Still messy though.

How cute. Next year bring out the meat tenderizer, that will break those pretty red and pink cc up!

Amanda said...

Your daughter is right. They are hard to chop and chew. :-)
The cookies look divine!

I had plans to make Christmas cookies with my daughters this year, but we just ran out of time! Maybe we'll make these with our leftover candy canes. :) They look yummy!

Yum - I need to try these! I can't say I've ever tried to intentionally break candy canes. They just always end up breaking on their own.

happy new year!
