I plan on making a bunch of new cookies in the next few days. Ideally, I'd like to get to all the requests and suggestions people have sent in. I'll get there. I promise...to try!
The first of these by-request cookies will fulfill the cookie dreams of two readers: Lorraine, who loves candy canes, and Amelia, who said that peppermint bark was one of her favorite holiday treats.
And so I present to you the new and improved Yuletide Cookie (recipe TK), which will capture the colors of the season in all their minty, crunch glory.
Red candy canes are peppermint, blue starlight mints are wintergreen, and green candy canes are spearmint. These are the perfect toppings for Christmas or Hanukkah cookies.
