Peppermint Blondies

Teresa Ambra

Peppermint Blondies make exceptionally delicious Christmas cookies! These lovely shortbread bars are filled with Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips. I love making homemade goodies with these peppermint flavored baking chips. One bite literally takes your breath away as they are packed with peppermint essence.

This recipe is really pretty easy. After mixing the dough you just press it into a baking pan. The blondies come out perfectly every time and taste amazing. I used this cookie dough to make several kinds of blondies for our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza this year. I made up about 40 trays to take to folks at our church and Peppermint Blondies was one of those goodies. I also recommend these blondies for Christmas Cookie Exchanges. Each batch makes 4 dozen so it goes far.

If you’re looking for a festive, Christmasy cookie for the holidays then Peppermint Blondies should be on your list! They’re a lot easier than making cookies and if you’re a peppermint lover, you’ll really enjoy these cookies.

    Not sure if 5 1/2 cups of flour was a typo but these were AWFUL. SO DRY and just like eating a handful of peoermint flavored flour.

      Hi Maggie. No it isn’t a typo but you have to keep stirring the recipe until all the flour is really moistened and worked into the dough.
