I love the holidays. I especially love the cookies! This year, I wanted to make a unique Christmas cookie. When my Mom suggested a red velvet cookie, I came up with this recipe. If you want a great recipe that will make you the star of any holiday party or cookie exchange, look no further. This cookie is amazingly good. It also looks really pretty. I’m so excited that this recipe was chosen to be featured in the SITS Girls Holiday Cookie eBook.

1 bowl of peppermint cream cheese frosting (below)

Add the mix, eggs, butter, sugar and vanilla and stir until it forms a soft dough. Add the mint chips. Spoon the dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Once cooled, turn one cookie upside down and frost the bottom. Sprinkle the candy cane pieces on the edge of the frosting and top with another cookie.
