Peppermint Bark Sugar Cookies

by Laura

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope hope you all have a terrific day with lots of tasty food, family, and friends. I am continuing today with another cookie recipe, peppermint bark sugar cookies.

Peppermint and chocolate is one of my favorite holiday flavor combinations. So why not a cookie that has those two flavors in it?

I created this simple sugar cookies to include both peppermint and chocolate. I have to tell you when I was testing the first batch of cookies, I ended up with a big mess.

So I cooked the cookies on a baking sheet liked with parchment paper. As I was removing the first pan from the oven, I had it slightly angled as I was pulling it out. The whole sheet of parchment slipped right off the baking sheet and fell to the bottom of the oven. I ended up with a big old pile of cookie mess at the bottom of my oven.

I quickly tried to scoop what I could out of the oven. What was left started to burn as I was cooking the over batches. I ended up setting off my fire alarm. My dog, who tends to be my sous chef, was not happy with the blaring alarm.

By the way, if you ever do accidentally set off your fire alarm,  I have now learned to just turn off the breaker that powers the alarm. Wait for all the smoke to leave and then turn the breaker back on.
