12 Days of Christmas Cookies 11 - Peppermint Snow Cookies

It snows several inches here last night but fortunately nothing too dense. But it is going to turn to rain this afternoon and it might be all ice tomorrow. Yikes! To reflect the beauty of snow and ice, here I present the peppermint snow cookies! It is based on snowball cookies (Mexican wedding cookies) but without powder sugar. Both cookie dough and red color icing have peppermint extract. And the cookies are sprinkled with crushed peppermint candies. It gives a sense of cold in this cold weather!

Our tree was blue this year (white tree, blue decorations) and I managed to find some blue candy canes that are bubblegum flavored. I wonder how these would taste with crushed bubblegum (no peppermint extract).
