More Christmas cookies! I had planned to get all my Christmas cookies blogged before Christmas, but I was so busy that there was no way that would have been able to happen. Ideas for next year, I guess?
I got this recipe from Sugarcrafter, and they came out sooooooo well. Do not be afraid of meringue! I had to bake them in a 200 degree oven rather than 175 since my oven doesn't go that low, and it actually only took an hour for them to be done. These cookies taste like peppermint, but aren't overwhelmingly minty.

|Still totally in lurve with my KitchenAid. This whipped meringue in about 8 minutes, whereas with my hand mixer it took me an hour.|
