More About This Recipe

  • When we first created these pretty peppermint cookies, they used a seasonal peppermint cookie dough we sold just once per year. Delicious? Absolutely. But we think you should be able to enjoy these cookies all year round, so we went back to the kitchens and tweaked the recipe to use our perfect-any-time-of-year sugar cookie dough instead. You don’t need to be a cookie-making expert to whip up a batch of these cool and creamy peppermint-white chocolate treats, because they only need five ingredients. And this recipe makes three dozen cookies, so there’s plenty to share (or not share—no judgment here).
