mintblossoms

My all time favorite Christmas cookie is the Peanut Butter Blossom. It’s not that I wouldn’t love to eat it all year round, it just feels more like a holiday cookie.

That’s what I was so excited to find this bright twist on the original. It features a sugar cookie base with a meltaway mint in the center.


They can be a little trick to find. I get mine in the bulk candy section of our supermarket where they have things like caramels, peppermints, and gummy rings.
