1
roll Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
2
cups whipping cream
1/2
cup powdered sugar
1
teaspoon peppermint extract
Red food color
10
striped peppermint candies

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Very thinly slice cookie dough to make 30 cookies. Place 2 inches apart on 2 ungreased large cookie sheets.
  • 2 Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and crispy. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 5 minutes.
  • 3 Meanwhile, in medium bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form. Beat in peppermint extract and food color until stiff peaks form. Transfer to serving bowl; cover and refrigerate.
