Bring on the Cookies!

IMG_8538

That’s what happens this time of year right?  Every where you turn….there’s a festive cookie recipe you want to try…cookbooks, magazines, blogs.  I’ve never been huge into cookie baking, but I can see where it can become a bit of a “sport”…I think this year I will be baking a few more than I normally do.

Our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is having a Cookie Exchange for this month’s theme.  The girls and I each picked a Cooking Light cookie recipe to bake, taste and feature…and here’s what made it to the plate:

Jamie: Raspberry Strippers
Shelby: Chocolate Hazelnut Thumbprints
Val: Orange Walnut Tassies
Hélène: Maple Date Bars
Aggie:
Peppermint Patties

Check out each member’s blog to see their cookies and recipes!

It was hard to choose just one cookie…but when I saw the Peppermint Patties I thought they were a perfect treat.  They aren’t just a cookie…they are actually an ice cream cookie sandwich and who’s not a fan of ice cream cookie sandwiches?  The cookies are crisp and chocolaty, and the crushed peppermint candy coating just makes this cookie sandwich that much better.  My little guy was quoted saying “That was awesome!” after eating his.

If you are in the mood for trying these yummy treats out for yourself visit MyRecipes.com for a printable copy of Peppermint Patties.

I highly recommend following the directions in the recipe that suggests you put back in the freezer for 4 hours before serving.  I was impatient and started photographing my yummy cookies immediately after making them and ended up with melty ice cream mess…so we had to hurry and eat them and then start filling a new batch.  No worries…we got it under control! 🙂
