I’m a sucker for a great Christmas cookie! Ask anyone that knows me and they will tell you, I spend all of December in the kitchen whipping up new and exciting Christmas cookie recipes. I love these peppermint meringue cookies because they are unexpected and a little different than your traditional sugar cookie. I call them cookies, but you could also call them Christmas candies, either way, you’ll be making these, year after year!
