You guys, let me tell you, these cookies………
I just don’t have any words.
Lately, I’ve been trying to cut back on my sugar intake. When you spend as much time in the kitchen as I do, you have to be pretty aware of how much sugar you’re taking in. Too much sugar, and I’m a jittery mess.
It’s not fun.
So, I’ve been trying to watch it. But then, I made these cookies. And I’m seriously starting to question whether or not walking around feeling like I’m shaking is TRULY such a bad thing. Maybe these cookies are worth it?? Maybe with time, I’ll just get used to it? These are the types of things I think about when I try a cookie that’s so amazingly wonderful that I could eat it everyday for the rest of forever. (Of course, I’m exaggerating…keep an eye on your sugar intake, people. Your health comes first.)
These are a variation of a cookie that I made last year and absolutely loved. So, I took my favorite oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and switched it up just a bit, adding some Peppermint Crunch baking bits, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and pecans. This cookie is sweet and minty and chocolatey and amazing.
Try Peppermint Bark Cookies, my friends, you will love it!
