I can’t believe that Christmas is almost here! The days seem filled with baking and shopping, tree trimming and wrapping, not to mention holiday parties and I am enjoying every minute. My kitchen has become my second home trying to get all my goodies baked and packaged to share with my neighbors and family. So far the favorites in our house have been Turtle CookiesChocolate Peppermint Drops and these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Cookies (judging by there only being crumbs left in the cookie tins).

One of the things I like best about baking all these goodies is how wonderful the house smells. And there is nothing better than the smell of peppermint to bring the season to mind. Of course, adding chocolate only makes it even better, right?! These cookies are a variation of our favorite chocolate chip cookies with the added crunch of Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips. (Love the person that thought of introducing these little tasty tidbits to the shelves.) They are quick and easy to make and would be the perfect cookie for shipping to faraway family and friends.
