Fabulous Christmas cookie and very easy to make. I have a double oven. In one oven I used my regular cookie sheet, in the other oven I used my Pampered Chef baking stone. The cookies on the stone took longer and did not spread out like the others. Next time I will only use my cookie sheets. I was also nervous about flattening them too much. After making the first batch I really pressed them down and they turned out better. I also tried to make the edges uniform after I pressed down first batch. They look nicer in their natural shape. Lastly, I overcooked a batch because I thought they would look more golden when they were done so I left them a little longer. They were still fine but a little harder than I think they should be. I love these pretty buttery minty cookies! These are a must bake at Christmas time. Thanks Island Girl!
Absolutely loved it. Will make it again and again. Served the cookies with peppermint ice cream and my friends are still raving about it. There are two small things I would modify when I make this recipe the next time: #1 - I will add 1 more tsp of peppermint extract (I want more flavor in the cookies) and #2 - I will place only six cookies on each baking sheet. They really spread out quite wide and I didn't leave enough space between them. Otherwise, they're simply exquisite! Buttery, crispy, gorgeous looking. A winner!
I tried this recipe today after finding some leftover peppermint candy from the Holidays. I was a little skeptical about the oatmeal/peppermint combo but they are delicious! Definitely will make these again (many times I think!) Thanks for sharing.
Here's a new cookie for your Christmas cookie plate! These turned out very nicely! I made half a batch of these, fitting 12 cookies easily onto each baking sheet with parchment and baking for 12 minutes. I got 23 cookies using a small cookie scoop. These are very tasty! Thanks for the recipe!
My cookies did not look like those in the picture but did taste good. After I had the first batch in the oven I saw that I had a partial package of mini chocolate chips on the counter and added those to the rest of the batter, made a great addition.
Wonderful cookies that are simple to make! Followed the directions exactly. The oatmeal and peppermint are a great combination. They also look like they came from a bakery!
