White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies are one of the best holiday cookies! They are soft and chewy with the perfect peppermint kick and the white chocolate is the perfect compliment. This recipe makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies. So there will be plenty of cookies to share with your family or plenty to share at your next Christmas cookie exchange party.
These White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies would be amazing dipped in a cup of creamy hot chocolate. I love how quick and easy these cookies are to make. After one bite, you will feel like they are heaven sent!
