Peppermint Cookies

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving...I did.  Cally and I started our day by getting up and going shopping then we ate at my Mom and Dads.  Cally and I took a couple dishes with us for dinner.  Cally made a Pumpkin Cheese Cake and I made Deviled Eggs.

Then we were shopping again that night.  We were at Best Buy in line for a TV at 9:50.  We were one of the lucky ones and got a ticket to purchase our TV.  By the time the store opened at midnight and we got our TV it was 2:30 am before we crawled into bed.  Then we were back out for round 3 this morning.  Cally and I love Thanksgiving/Black Friday shopping.

This cookie was one that I made for the NW Craft Show.  The cookie has Peppermint Mocha coffee creamer and peppermint chips.  These would be really good with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee.
