Peppermint Sugar Cookies




* 1/2 cup butter

* 1/2 cup melted coconut oil

* 1 cup plain greek yogurt

* 1 1/2 cups sugar

* 2 teaspoons vanilla

* 4 1/2 cups flour

* 1 teaspoon baking powder

* 1 teaspoon salt

* 1 cup crushed candy cane

* sugar for top of cookies


* 1/2 cup butter softened

* 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain Greek yogurt

* 4 cups powdered sugar

* 1 teaspoon vanilla

* dash of salt

* 1-2 drops red food coloring optional

* 2-3 tablespoons milk if needed

* sprinkles/crushed candy peppermint



-Preheat oven to 350

  • Take butter out of fridge and microwave for about 15 sec.
  • Mix butter, oil, and cold yogurt for 1 minute
  • add sugar and vanilla, mix until smooth
  • Add all dry ingredients at once, including the crushed peppermint.
  • Mix just until flour disappears and mixture comes together in a ball of dough. Mix on low.
  • Spray a 2in cookie scoop with a little cooking spray.
  • Scoop the dough onto a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat. If you dont have a scoop, roll into 2in balls.
  • Place about 1/4 cup of sugar into a bowl, spray the bottom of a flat cup with cooking spray. Flat one cookie a bit, and then dip the cup into the sugar.
  • Press the bottom of your glass cup against the cookie. twisting the cup as you press, to make a jagged edge.
  • I bake 8-10 cookies at a time on a sheet. Bake for 10-12min. until edges are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2min. then slightly loosen cookies from the pan or they will stick even to a lined pan. and then continue to cool.
  • Make Frosting! Combine all ingredients in a mixer until combined. add a little milk if you need it thinner. Frost cookies after they are cooled. Sprinkle with crushed peppermint on top. Best if kept chilled in the fridge!
