12 Days of Cookies- Candy Cane Blossoms

I love peppermint! It’s one of my favorite things about the holiday season! There’s just something about the smell that makes a home so inviting and festive! Candy cane blossoms are somewhat new to me. I have made them before, but didn’t use this recipe. I think this one turned out so much better.

Candy cane blossoms are so easy to make. They are kind of like making peanut butter blossoms, but not. If that makes sense! Haha!

You need  butter, flour, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, oil, eggs, vanilla, peppermint extract, baking powder, baking soda, cream or tartar, salt, and candy cane kisses.

Cream the butter, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, and oil.



Add vanilla, peppermint extract, and eggs. Mix well.


Add the flour, salt, cream of tartar, baking powder, and baking soda. Mix well until all is combined.


Form dough into small balls, roll in sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Flatten with a glass that is buttered and dipped in sugar. The butter and sugar will help the dough not stick to the glass.


Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and press a candy cane kiss onto top of cookie. Transfer to cooling rack.


How easy are those? They are so good! Especially with a mug of hot chocolate!
