Today I made peppermint meringue cookies.


I had been warned that pure peppermint extract would make the cookies “flatten” and they did.  But it did not seem to affect the taste or texture one bit.  However:  1/2 teaspoon for the whole batch was WAY too much for me, although my guys were fine with it.

I sprinkled red sugar on top.

I made a second batch using the regular recipe and sprinkled crushed peppermint candy on top.  Perfect!
