Peppermint Holiday Cookies

Posted on 07 December 2021

Naughty or nice, everyone deserves a Holiday cookie. These frosted sugar cookies with our Peppermint extract is the best Holiday treat you can make for parties, goodie bags or the Holiday dinner table!


  • Unsalted Butter (Room temperature) – ½ cup or 113 gm
  • Large Egg - ½ of one or around 25 gm
  • White Granulated Sugar- ½ cup or 100 gm
  • Vanilla Extract- ½ Tbsp
  • Amoretti® Peppermint Extract Oil Soluble - 1 tsp
  • Salt- One pinch
  • All purpose- flour- 1 ½ cups (200 gm)


  1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, using a stand mixer or hand mixer.
  2. Incorporate the egg and blend until fully combined, by scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl.
  3. Add the extracts and salt. Mix again on medium speed.
  4. Drop in the flour and give it a gentle mix or even mix in with a spatula to prevent overmixing.
  5. Make a rough ball of the dough and place it in between two sheets of parchment paper and roll it out into a 1/4th inch thick sheet.
  6. Refrigerate the sheet and when firm, cut out the shapes you want with Christmas themed cookie cutters and move them to a separate sheet baking tray lined with parchment paper or silicon mat. Pop the tray in the fridge for the shapes to harden up again.
  7. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  8. Bake the chilled cookies for 8-10 minutes or until slightly golden on the sides.
  9. Cool and decorate with frosting of your choice.
