  • Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are just starting to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for at least ten minutes before gently twisting to remove from pan. Place on rack.

If you can't find the peppermint sugar cookie dough you can replace it with 2 (16.5 oz) rolls of plain sugar cookie dough. You'll need to add in 1/2 cup Andes Peppermint Baking Chips OR crushed candy canes. You could also add in 1 tsp peppermint extract if you can't find the chips or candy canes.
