So… two peppermint recipes in a week, and it’s not even Thanksgiving. I’m not sure what has gotten into me. I really do enjoy all things Thanksgiving,and I am a firm believer in one holiday at a time, but the smell of those doughnut muffins baking last weekend was too much. I’ve got chocolate and peppermint on the brain.

That, and these are quite simply the easiest cookies on the planet.  Which is really good because let me tell you I have been less than enthusiastic about the kitchen this week.

Does that ever happen to you?

I spent all last weekend baking up a storm, finalizing my holiday menu, planning a dinner for friends, and  then all of a sudden I just can’t even look at my kitchen anymore.

ZERO motivation. It was so bad that on Wednesday I fed my kids frozen pizza for dinner. Stella refused to even come to table.

I figured cookies would help her forget.
