A couple of great things about the holiday season are sugar cookies and peppermint.  Have you ever combined the two?  It is pretty simple when you combine a box of Sugar Cookie mix plus a bag of Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips.

Simply follow the package directions for making the sugar cookies.  You don’t even have to get your stand mixer dirty.  A bowl, mixing spoon, and a little old-fashioned stirring will do the trick.

Now these are good as-is….

But doesn’t a little sugar on top make everything better?

Word of caution:  the peppermint aroma is a little strong when you open the oven after baking these.  (It’s great for the sinuses!)

What a great way to take a boxed mix and make it your own. Boxed mixes really do make baking a lot easier, but I think it is always nice to find a way to add a little twist to the basic boxed cookies and cakes. You've done a great job of that with this recipe.
